Nice, except the memory is a single DIMM not a 2x4GB kit, so you will need to buy another at $40.

>> so you will need to buy another to utilize dual channel (read:faster) memory speeds

As a footnote, Gskil rocks customer service in comparison to my recent experiences with Crucial.

Any comment on the cpu and board? One of my children have all but maxxed out the hand-me-down P4 3.2 + 2gb mem + Nvidia 256MB GPU for playing semi-recent games.

I don't know what CPU you are talking about but I just installed this board with and FX 4100, Gskill Ripjaws and everything went smoothly. Still installing software so can't comment on speed yet. I think it is a lot of MB for the price.

If you don't want the ram you can get it at superbiiz for $10 less using the yay9ers $6 off code...

Supports SLI! Nice.
