Any opinions? My Mobo can take up to 8 gigs of Ram, I'm thinking of going for 1066 Mhz instead of 800. Worth the extra cash or just stick to 800?

Thanks for the replies

No. DDR2 1066 is just factory OCed DDR2 800. Some motherboards (mainly P35-DS3/DS4) boards seems to have problems with RAM natively higher than DDR2 800.

true enough. As for my sig I don't regret buying anything, but it was really high price (cough 9800 GX2 cough). The Ram was 50$ each for the 2 sets. I'm just thinking of whether getting 8 gigs of Ram or just 4 gigs 1066. But seeing as it has problems and its just oced Maybe its not worth it.
