That they are to go Blu Ray exclusive over the coming months.

Best Buy have also said that their staff will be recommending Blu Ray as the HD format of choice from now on.

It seems HD DVD owners will be finding it hard to get hold of HD DVD's soon, especially as it's rumoured that the remaining supporting studio's are set to go "Blu" in preparation for the next holiday season.
 
Chuffed that the format wars are possibly ending soon? Or miffed that your HD DVD player is now borderline extinct?

Way it`s heading, 4GB(2x2g) is the way to go. 2x1g u can semi get away with, but tbh, with the Vista-factor, u waste half of it.

Outside of a `sold as` 4x1G quad kit, 4x1G works, but I (or the manufs) wouldn`t recommend it for people pushing their systems.

6GB will thrown ur timings off so much, it isn`t worth it - if ur an oc`er/get the best out of ur stuff - type person.
