thx for the info.
i guess i will shell out the money for 6gb. btw will you see a big difference in performance if you had 3gb vs 6gb of DDR3 triple channel ?
If you are using Windows7 or Vista, especially if using 64bit Win7 or Vista, the more RAM the better. If using 32bit XP, then 3 GB is more than enough; but with an X58 and i7, I hope you are using at least 64bit Vista.
