Wow... 32GB of RAM. Isn't Sandy Bridge the mainstream and low end platform? Why on earth would anybody with such a platform need 32GB of RAM?

Gotcha'.

I was just imagining a budget, sub-$100 board with advertisement that it supports 32GB of RAM.

No, not at all.

I just kinda' laugh at somebody paying so little for the board and processor, but then dumping... thousands(?) almost on the RAM.

Would be kinda' funny, is all.

my 24gb sells for less than $1000 now and that includes other brands too. the only sick ram price I have seen is the g.skill 48gb 1900mhz ram kit for the evga sr-2 mb. It sells on newegg for $3500. now that's ridiculous.

Yeah, just checked newegg and it'd probably be between $500 and $700.

Still, dumping that much for RAM when the mobo and proc combined cost maybe half that seems... well, retarded.
