"Algorithms are for people who don't know how to buy RAM." That reminds me of the Jon Bentley book Programming Pearls where he compares (something like) a 300MHz DEC alpha to a 2MHz Radio Shack TRS-80 running a more efficient algorithm. For problems above a certain size the TRS-80 is faster. For problems above an even bigger size, the alpha will effectively never finish. If your problem is big enough then algorithms matter.
