this is a great ram+mobo combo:

if youre looking for best fps/dollar, look towards a pair of gtx 560 ti's or hd6950's:

frankly a $360 6970 has pretty lousy single card price/performance also, especially when compared to the $320 gtx 570. i also find it odd that newegg seems to be depleting the stock of hd6970's.
