Default Re: Building a new GAMING computer

i personally wouldnt go with the 5970 if you want to get that kind of performance get 2 of the 1 GB 256-bit nvidia 460 GTXs when running in SLI they are just as fast or faster in most games as the 5970 plus you get the dedicated physx for around 200 dollars less.

ok i am not the best at computers but what is a Tri-channel RAM kit? i am not adamant on anything in partcular but the best gaming desktop i can build, and to answer the statement poster above about a dual video card, i am choosing the 5970 because later i want to have the ability to put in a second 5970 and the price is not truly a real problem ATM... also i want to keep my MOBO, in my opinion Asus kicks ass unless you are a 100% positive this tri-channel ram kit is the best thing for me...in that case i will need some helping figuring that out...thank you
