^I build an AMD Phenom II rig in about 2011, within about 6 months it felt obsolete in relation to the new stuff. In late 2012 after Sandy bridge had it's issue fixed all the prices went back up, but it was worth the dough. 2015 and still doing alright!

I feel that if I build a new rig now, It'll be another 6 months down the line and it'll feel obsolete again. I'm going to wait until the pipeline stuff is well established and DDR4 is more widely adopted

Yeah I am surprised that DDR4 isn't being widely adopted yet and that manufacturers are still going with DDR3..

I think it's the SSD's.

RAM needs fast data reading capabilities around it to work efficiently and even DDR2 is much faster than SSD's.

I think so!

I think so far the only chipset on the market that supports it is X99, which is only compatible with Haswell-E, of which the cheapest CPU is something like 420, and the 5960X (top end) is like what, 850ish?!

I imagine when Skylake hits, and on the red team AMD Zen, we'll see DDR4 support across the board. I've also heard that we might/should be seeing mobos supporting DDR4 on one side of the CPU and DDR3 on the other (not at the same time of course!) since DDR4 is still crazy expensive compared to DDR3.

In theory we should start seeing a shift towards DDR4 soon, and in turn DDR3 will become an expensive legacy item similar to how DDR2 went.

Also biker, loving the switchblade and funky pocket knife on the side there. Expecting some unwelcome company? :P

Very clean cable management Seti.

I have updated my system a bit.
Added a second GTX 770 in SLI.
Changed the PSU cables with red individually sleeved cables.
Change lighting to white instead of red. (i might re-arranger the position of the LED stripe to better light up the second Graphic card)
