DDR3 Reaches New Heights Buffalo Technology DDR3 RAM
Memory manufacturer Buffalo has shown off some prototype DDR3 modules that are capable of a blistering 2400MHz (PC3-19200). These modules utilize Elpida 1Gbit DDR3 SDRAM that have a transfer rate of 2.5Gbps.

In order to reach these previously unheard of speeds, the modules require 2.1v and lax timings of 11-11-11-34. Obviously, these settings sound rather high and perhaps a bit disappointing. However, these modules were also tested at the extremely low voltage of 1.5v and were found to be capable of 2096MHz with timings of 9-10-9-24.

The two companies are hoping to pursue the mass production of high-speed, low voltage modules.

What do you think of this new level in DDR3 speed?

That system would probably pull maybe... 300w? Think a 400-500w PSU would be your best bet.

How much will 1x 8600 GT require ?

Dude.. I wouldn't go for that little.. always plan ahead.

Why two 8600GTs? Better off going for something a little more up market and getting 2x 9600GT's to be honest the 2x 8600GTs is a waste of time and money.

I would settle for a 600W PSU to be perfectly honest, that CPU there uses 95w (correct me if I am wrong please) on its own at full load.

Im going with the 8600s because i already have them from my first build but i really dont know how much it takes to power them
