Hi,

You won't see much of a performance increase over 800 mhz going to 1066mhz. Honestly its not worth it. Just slightly increase ram voltage and all done. If required just change the ram ratio

i tried but the ram is holding me back to oc,not looking for a performance increase just to over clock more

Oh fair enuff, but still i believe your wasting your money as you wont get that much more of an oc i think :unsure: mayb 500mhz if your lucky

i reckon your better off with a video card upgrade if anything.

lol i got 4870x2 in cross fire so yea =x don't think i need a video card upgrade anytime soon LOL.

LOL

dam ur rich well i cant argue with that :thumbs-up:

 

umm i reckon if u go for that ram you should just go 2 the extreme rig with ddr3 ram rated at 1600mhz :thumbs-up: .

Buy new mobo if u dont have ddr3 mobo already

 

And then you will have the awsomest rig.

to be honest i don't see a major gain in ddr 3,but if i do go ddr 3 i want it if i do decide to go core i7...

 

right now the ddr 2 1066 is the only thing i can see my self happy with in this rig right now

Yep

 

Ok, so are you giong to buy the 1066mhz ram
