    These prices are off newegg and I can get the video card for $30 cheaper off pricewatch.

    What do you guys think or what would you suggest? I haven't bought new stuff in a long time, so I don't know what is good out.

    BFG Tech GTX 260 164.99 with 20.00 mail in rebate(comes with the new Batman game)
    and
    OCZ DDR2 1066 4gb(2x2gb) 51.99

    $16 more before mail in rebate but could work out better since it seems your bored has more ddr2 slots I believe.

    Performance wise better or looking ahead for future upgrade better?

    Is the ddr2 going to be better than the ddr3 now or long term?

    Reading reviews on that card, people say that it is huge. I will probably have to get a full tower instead of a mid-tower and people said that it could block slots on the mobo.

    opinion?
