    DDR3 or DR2

    Hi,
    I would go for the new GIGABYTE GA-X48-DQ6 (Intel X48+ICH9R) which I am using, it uses DDR2 ram instead of DDR3, DDR3 ram is not as fast in testing as DDR2, wait a while until they sought out DDR3 ram more, Most high end machines and users are opting for DDR2 over DDR3 ram, I have no intention of switching for a while yet, not until you really see a performance increase to justify DDR3 ram.

    Cheers

    P.S Have been researching this long before DDR3 was out to the public..

      Steve,

      How is the rest of your systems configuration?

      And are you using the NX (Pci) express card with the board?

        Board

        Hi Ton,
        No I run Vista 64bit and because the drivers are not out I cant,
        I use Edius as a OHCI program only, The rest of the system great, no problems with the board or raid ect, I must admit that I have only just set it all up and still in the progress of installing software, but so far no problems, these boards scream with the new intel X48 chipset.

        Cheers

          OK, very clear Steve

          But I am planning to build a system around the NX card.
          So I think its better to wait a little untill GrassValley has tested the boards for compatibility whith the NX.

            There may be more, but I don't have any further info.
            Is there already more news when the results of the tests are being published?

                I am sorry to ask it again, but still no news on the update of the hardware list??

                Now that Microsoft has notified that the are stopping to sell windows XP http://www.microsoft.com/windows/pro...xp/future.mspx and my reseller doesn't have very much copies of it in stock I get a little bit worried.

                I know, I am not the only one who is waiting for the result of the testing.

                And because the NX doesn't work (yet) with Vista I will have to build my new systeem (very) soon, because I have to buy a new Windows OEM licences.
