Hi Barry,The P4 is designed to run with Rambus RAM (RDRAM), so if you have the cash, this is the way to go. Just bear in mind that your choice of memory (DDR versus Rambus)will require different chipsets, and hence distinct mainboards. If you can hold off your purchase unitl this fall, it should be worth the wait.
