thanks for continued advice people. unlike most of you, i'm never going to do things like overclock, however i am going to be doing quite a lot of photo / video editing, hence needing to upgrade as my current 'old faithful' ain't exactly quick when in psp, adobe ps etc.
how soon are we likely to see ddr2 memory in mainstream, mass produced pcs? if it ain't within the next few months i'm probably as well going for one with standard ddr, no? or will the performance gains if i have 1gb of ddr2 instead of ddr be so good that i should hang off?
