Some of the RAMs I was thinking about (I'll get 2gb): Kingston HyperX 1G DDR2 800 CL5 Kit 64MX64 Non-ECC 800MHz 240-pin Unbuff. DIMM 1.95V GEIL 1GB PC2-6400 DDR2 800Mhz Black Dragon, 4-4-4-12 GEIL 1GB PC2-8500 DDR2 1066Mhz Black Dragon, 5-5-5-15 OCZ 1GB DDR2, 1066MHz Reaper Heatpipe HS/CL5-5-5-15 /Kit The main question: is 1066 worth it?
