So it turns out I don't have the foggiest idea what new computer technology has come about in the last 5+ years. Please go ahead and fill me in...I've got some questions. Any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated. What do you need to take full advantage of SLI? How does SLI work? Do any AMD motherboards have PCI-E slots? What's the slowest refresh time for an LCD monitor for decent gameplay? I graduate this coming May, and would like to start assembling my computer by September. Are there any price breaks or new technologies set to occur/hit the market later this year, where I'd want to wait a short while longer? I'd like to get 4 GB of DDR Ram for my motherboard (that's the max I've seen for any motherboards so far), but is there any compelling reason to get DDR2 or whatever? I'd like to make a gaming computer, but chances are I won't be gaming all that much on it...I just like having an overbuilt computer that's got little to no lag time. Anyway, much thanks for your help.
