You're fine with DDR2. Go for the SSD, SLI and PSU.

I was only thinking my 1100T would be bottleneck badly on DDR2. (just got it.) All so feel that DDR2 is dieing BUT I have my 8GB of RAM, don't need a RAM amount upgrade.

I just ordered the #2, should be here next Monday.


Thank you for all your help.

PCCstudent- I didn't think any one remembered RAMBUS, I have one next to me for repair. (one bad stick.)
