Okay thanks. I will surely go with 64 bit as I will have a 680i motherboard for SLI and I will be looking to use this computer for gaming for the next 10-15 years. So I am sure the extra RAM capability will help.

You should note that only the 64 bit versions of vista that can support the 128gb RAM limit are Ultimate, Enterprise, and Business. The 64 bit versions of Home Premium can hold up to 16gb and Home Basic can hold up to 8gb.

10-15 yrs????

Thats being really optimistic. Realistically 3 years if you like being on the cutting edge. 5 years if your lucky. Just in that length of time, the shear technology changes will make you want to change.

I laughed a bit when I read that in George's post because I wasn't sure if he was serious or not (no offense, George.) In any case, a computer can be a lot of hassle financially if you want to be at the very top of gaming. Of course, the main things you'll be upgrading is your graphics card, RAM, and possibly your power supply depending on the power consumption of each graphics card you get. You can usually get away with your processor for a few years (depending on how fast it is how many processing cores it has.)
