Mobo: ASUS RAMPAGE FORMULA LGA 775 Intel X48 CPU: Q9450 (Quad 2.66) RAM: OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) GPU: 8800GT 512MB (or an ATI on this level)
I'm planning this eventual gaming rig and one thing I'd like to do is make it future-proof. With my current system (a Dell before I knew any better), I've been severely limited by what I can upgrade/overclock and so on.
On this new system, is not having DDR3 capability a problem? I hear it doesn't make a difference now, but is it worth getting a board capable of using it when it becomes more efficient?
Are there any other glaring issues I don't see? The entire system (with monitor) is around $1,500 on Newegg and I'd like to keep it around that.
