You fellows seen this? Check out "Crysis" and "World in Conflict".

Real gains in both games I noted at 1920x with a doubling of system memory speed from 800 to 1600.

Wow, even at those high resolutions it makes a hell of a difference with 3+ GPU's. Tri and Quad SLI obviously needs a crap-load of bandwidth and is VERY dependent on it.

Oh well. DDR3 prices are dropping fast. Should be quite affordable by the time i'm ready for a major upgrade.

I am thinking about 790i + the Q9650 (when it comes out) DDR 3 1600 and the next big thing from nVidia in SLi. Perhaps the rumored 9900. Of course I'll go 1920x for my LCD or even 2560x.

Next time I upgrade it's going to be a fairly massive affair.
