My System Specs

For the RAM, will 4 gigs make a difference over 2 gigs?

Any help would be great. Hopefully I can get this setup in the next month.
Just make sure you have a proper PSU for those dual GTSs. If you don't plan on folding with the CPU, I would consider a board with triple 4x (or higher) PCI-e slots to add a third GTS. Those can still fold quite well, and are selling for a low price.
