    So they were hoping for a vista re-release to catch people needing to upgrade ram to make their OS run smooth.
    Very bad business plan!

    HDD Prices have dropped ALOT (3x to 4x) in the past 4 months.

    I wouldn't say 3 to 4 times, but they are slowly getting back to their pre-Thailand-flood prices.

    i feel that an OS that is efficient and not heavy on resource load is great, DRam COmpanies should cater to server markets more often

    Me too, on my AXP. But the most modern type of RAM I use/have is DDRII.

    Yo, the slowest RAM, DDR-200, has a rate of 1600MB/s. That Aeon card is only 750MB/s, even slower than some PCI-Express SSDs.
    I am not sure, but the PCI-ex buss can take 8GB/s, so actually if you have some cheap DDR3-1066 modules, you'll have more speed than the PCI express bus...
