Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Ill pull them out this weekend for you.

Memory is memory for the most part. Sure you can buy some low pro sticks that run big numbers (We looked at a set that did really well, The same set you say you love so much) and you can get the upper crust that is guaranteed to run a number with a specific look. Pricing wise they are on the high end but if you like the look and like what they offer then the price will be what you are willing to pay. If they were what I wanted in my rig I would buy it. Its just like when I spent way to much money on a pair of 1900Xt's ( Yes a master and secondary card) and then bought a pair of 8800GTs less than six months later. DId i need them, nope but I wanted them and delivered the performance I wanted with the look I wanted to have to extend my e peen
