The cheaper way would be to buy a motherboard that has 6 memory slots, and buy 2 sets of 3x2 GB ddr3.

When running L4D and a server with a 3.8Ghz X3350 (Q9450) which I do often when my clan wants to go over strats or practice specifics, my framerate often drops below 60FPS when the AI director is enabled. I also often run Photoshop, Hammer and L4D at the same time. And of course, I have used AutoCAD in the past for school, and likely will be next semester for school.

And I bring up the argument, because for what most people are doing with high end PCs (gaming, browsing/email, F@H), 6GB vs 12GB vs 24GB vs 192GB isn't going to make any difference. I'd even be pretty surprised if 3GB vs 6GB was a large performance difference for gaming. Of course if he is actually running CAD, then the extra RAM will be much more noticeable depending on the complexity of what he is working with.

If he is looking at getting 24GB at some point, this wont work.
