    How ridiculous is that?!?

    I am wanting to go SLI here in the near future but I am not paying 400 for a mobo. The Asus P5N-T looks like a nice 780i board and will let me still use the DDR2 memory that I currently have.

    790i is apparently really nice but not $400 nice.

    If you build it, they will come

    If we pay it, it will go up.

    I'm happy with what I have for a year or so,,, still waiting on the CPU for the other build

    Or 4gb of Corsair Dominator for $120, even.

    Although, DDR3 prices are starting to come down - I think 2gb can be had for less than $200. I remember paying that for some Mushkin Redline DDR500
