Yay! Look what I think I might get. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=637682 The only bad thing is I don't know how to install 2 packs of memory. The other bad thing is I have to wait 17 more weeks to get it. Current System: AMD Athlon XP 2200+ 256RAM GeForce 5700 Ultra 128MB New System: (What my system will be in the future) Pentium 4 3000+ 1,026 RAM ATI Radeon 9800 *Goodbye Nvidia!* :uhm:

And the strange thing is, I've added up all the time it'll take and when I'll have the money, and that will be exactly on June 10th. Which is awkward because its my birthday.

The RAM your getting is Dual Channel, make sure your motherboard is compatible. Im currently using the system you described, with different brand RAM though, on a Abit IC7-G mainboard.

the installing procedure on Dual Channel RAM is no different from single sticks. Usually a motherboard with dual channel support has 4 slots for RAM, with 2 slots working together for dual channel mode. The slots are marked in color, so you should easily spot the 2 corrosponding slots. It doesnt matter which ones you choose... Good luck with your new sys =)

What I know(and please others feel free to add), ATI cards were designed to run with DirectX, which new games such as FarCry, Half-Life 2, Painkiller are all designed around. You try to play DirectX mode through an nvidia card, and your card will give you a hernia. Radeon's were designed for DirectX gaming, nVidia's were designed for advanced OpenGL applications. And ATI cards accel when running AA and AF. We can sit here and start another flame thread, but it really depends on what you will be using this card for.

what are you talking about, both Nvidia and ATI both design there cards for DirectX and OpenGL, and it still doesnt mater anyways cos you can play any game in DX or OpenGL mode and there going to look about the same. but yes right now ATI doesn show as much off a performance hit with AA and AF on. No lets not start another flame thread and say this once and for all, THERE IS VERY LITTLE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO.
