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.

I'm probably looking to drop some coin on memory over the next couple of weeks and I'm wondering about the higher speeds.......

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).

That's ridiculous. It makes so much more sense to just buy a $250 kit of ram and overclock to those speeds
