Yeah its nothing new, but people investing in an expensive system like to know what they will get for their money.

I wouldn't say buy cheap ram, but buy frequency vice timings, and only invest in faster ram after you have everything else you want...and you can go dual or triple channel without much loss with SB-E.

Always figured higher clocked ram for gaming made zero real world performance. Just bragging rights more then anything I guess!
