Well if only mainstream motherboards supported 64GBs of DDR3.  OVERKILL!  Does even Vista 64 support that much RAM?

A 64-bit OS in theory can address up to 128Gb of RAM

Vista claims:

Home Basic: 8GB

Home Premium: 16GB

Utimate: 128GB

Business: 128GB

I'd actually be satisfied with 4 GB DDR3 modules. I've been planning to go from my Opteron 185 system to a new Nehalem-based build sometime next year. After reading Maximum PC's excellent writeup about building a Nehalem PC, I realized that I will almost certainly want to use three DIMMs, and 12 GB should be a solid starting point for a Vista 64 PC to last me a good 3-4 years. I just hope the DDR3 prices drop significantly over the next 8-12 months. 12 GB of DDR3 at today's prices would be around $750. :(
