    Agreed it will help with the extra bandwidth but not as much. Now, if you want to go ahead and get it to go to a new proc and what not, that is cool. However, Id stay with what you have.

    I would just get a better graphics card, if I were you.
    I'm happy with my rig on DDR2.
    I decided to skip upgrading this generation.
    I'll wait for the 8 core procs and the HD 6970 :D
