I'm trying to build a pretty future-proof PC, which is why I'm saying it might be using 12 GB eventually. Six gigs should be fine now, but I know that on 4 GB certain games get memory-starved, so six won't be enough forever.

I agree on hexacore i7's and gaming, thanks for confirming.

As for future-proofing; is it better to get the i7/470 now or wait for those new architectures in a year (I could get by with my Xbox for this year if it was really worth it, I'm just not sure what kind of performance increase I can expect)?
