Fisher, you will be able to keep your RAM if you got a motherboard that supports it. But since you are buying a core 2 duo, theres only a few motherboards that support DDR-400 RAM (none with DDR-500, so your RAM would be slower), and they aren't very good. You're gonna have to buy new RAM or buy a shitty motherboard and compromise your old RAM.

ASUS P5N-E SLI Socket T (LGA 775) NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131142

...is the best out now?

Hard to belive when it's so cheap.

But doesn't that only work for certain games that support it though? That config sure is a powerhouse huh? I love it.

Can a physics card work side by side with a regular video card?
