First I wonder why would you want to wait for DDR4?


On the actual matter, the official DDR4 standards have only been announced last month by the JEDEC.
Hynix did show off some DDR4 RAM at IDF last month but since not much info has been released about the specs it is clear that it will take a while before they are actually capable of mass producing (they don't want to show the competition what they can do). Then there is the fact that when they are actually going to be released it will first be for the server market.

When companies like Intel and AMD are announcing working DDR4 controllers it will be a matter of time before they will announce new products (chipsets and CPU's) which actually have these controllers build in at which point we are most likely between 1 and 2 years from now before you may even know a date that you can buy them.

Unless you are building an experimental top of the line pc you do not need DDR4, it will be very expensive and the chipsets that are needed to handle them wont be available for a while, plus they wont work properly untill at least a year down the line when the second revision of them have been created.

TLDR: Buy DDR3

I just did not want to build another PC with DDR3 in if they where to release DDR4 that all. I have a pritty good PC at the monent with 8 gigs of DDR3 Coirsair dominator 2000, i7 prosesor @4.2 watercooled, 250 solid state and 320 hhd, 2x evga 560 ti 448 core, 850 ocz gold power supply, ASUS Rampage mobo, Creative Fatality sound card. I just like to try and keep up with the times. Really want to get some new grafix cards like the EVGA 680s, want to ditch my 22" monitor for that new 24" 3D monitor benq looks sick and have heard good reviews http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showprodu ... =MO-051-BQ .

Before you buy into this 3D stuff, you should definitely try it out first. I, for example, get horrible headaches from these active 3D shutter glasses whereas passive 3D is fine. 3D monitors and nvidias 3D vision are always with active shutter glasses.

I would tend to agree with Deathtaker. The bigger the monitor the better. And if you have the money 3 side by side with AMD Eyefinity. You have to choose a panel that fits your needs though.
IPS: slow reaction time, very good viewing angles, very good colour reproduction, no 3D because no 120 Hz (all in all not so good for gaming)
TN: fast reaction time, bad viewing angles, bad colour reproduction, 3D is possible with 120 or 144 Hz (my choice if you only play games, or if you play on a competitive level)
VA: slow reaction time, good viewing angles, good colour reproduction, no 3D
you can read more about this here: http://www.pchardwarehelp.com/guides/lc ... -types.php

And don't forget to always read professional reviews of the monitor you want to buy. There are big differences between models even with the same panel.

As for DDR4: Don't worry about it. I think i read somewhere that DDR4 will be introduced with Haswell-EX in the enterprise market. It probably won't reach the consumer market until 2015.

And I for one have an eye condition which makes me incapable of actually seeing the active 3D. So yeah trying it first would be a very smart move.
