    Well my birthdays was yesterdat (July 7th) and I've been debating on what to get as a present. Initially I was thinking of getting a pocketbike but after thinking about it, its not worth getting. Anyways.. I was looking at ram earlier on newegg and found some that id like to get here: (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227084) What i'd like to know is it better to run 4 X 512MB or is that 2 X 1GB fine?

    Also, are Ipod's worth getting? This one caught my eye (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16855101443) but from reading the comments it seems pretty meteoker

    Ipod's nano's are good from what I know, but hey, I've dealth with Ipods before, not a very good product (very mainstream, so more those people that don't care too much for specs and want music on the go and are willing to pay ridiculous prices, then ya).

    2x512 should be fine.

    If you're running a NF4 motherboard you definitely want 2x1GB...4x512MB will almost certainly default to 2T command rate.
    It's a small performance hit but why take it if you don't have to?

    I've been very happy with Patriot RAM...this stuff has the same tight timings and is way cheaper than your pick (after rebate) and these
    are what Sprocket runs...they are overclocking monsters (I've passed MemTest at PC4000 speeds @2.5,2,3,7 and 1T ).

    If you do a sport, do you really want to be lugging around an ipod (at that price tag)??

    Well bawa, my iPod is/was good for long car trips since my dad would have his shitty music on, and while I was in school bored.
    Also good for walks to and/or from school.

    When I get my own car I'll probably have the iPod hooked up to listen to my music collection without wwasting cds/dvds.

    My mobos got an an ATI express 200 chipset and the shitty thing is I cant OC anything cause its got a locked bios.
