    Looking for some improvement

    And to upgrade some hardware.

    I am considering some memory since it is fairly cheap these days. I plan to upgrade my MoBo @ processor in the next few months; therefor I would like to take this in consideration. I hear the magic number is DDR2 800, but I am courious to know if it is better to wait for DDR3.

    I plan to utilize the memory for gaming and video editing; therefore I want to get something that I am not dissappointed with.

    Thanks in advance.

    DDR3 is yet to prove itself. On the other hand, it will probably prove itself in the near future. If you want to be future proof, I would go a motherboard that supports DDR3 (such as the P35).
