    If i were going to buy right now i'd go for a Granite Bay mobo and stick two modules of DDR in for Dual Channel DDR...

    while rambus IS still fast right now, it doesn't have much of a future on the desktop platform, DC DDR will be the dominating desktop platform

    this one seems to be popular right now, though a bit expensive it is loaded with lots of goodies: http://tw.giga-byte.com/products/8inxp.htm

    I've had good experiences with their 8IHXP mobo, i850e board... very stable and very fast

    they make good mobo's

    I dont know which gf4 card is best...

    however, I currently am running a leadtek ti4200 and i'm very happy with it. if you can spare the cash, get the vivo version. It does some amazing video.
