Yes, HDDs need to be improved. But TCCD will be gone soon as in a couple months and DDR2 will be more mainstream with the release of AM2.

You may be right... However, DDR2 doesn't look that attractive. I mean, the high frequencies, low price and low voltage is nice, but the latencies are horrid and the fact they overheat when overclocked even the slightest. Because of all that, many enthusiaists will stick with DDR1 until a viable DDR2 stick is made.

Micron D9 Fatbodies are a great example of high frequencies, both low/high voltage, and low latencies. The price is what makes it unattractive though. They are used in Corsairs 8000UL sticks, which are pretty expensive. But they are fast. DDR2 will need to be improved to compensate for AMD's love of low latencies.
