Ugh. Let's move to DDR3 already. The only reason I can think of to have memory modules this fast is to try to overclock those new Conroes that are coming out with a 1333MHz FSB. Personally I would choose the 1066 version every time. It'll be interesting to see if there are any other tweaks to the architecture to try to get people to upgrade.
Is it worth going with the 1066 to allow me to unlink the memory (you can do that right????) and not bother trying to OC, or would I be better off with lower latency DDR2 800 in the hopes that it'll ramp up?
('Tis a whole new world for me needing to worry about 1-1 with C2D).
And at what pathetic price will these be sold ?
Looks like $278 PER 1GB Module.
Geez....just give me some Cell Shock ram here in North America already. :ph34r:
