lol I just saw there's a pretty similar question to mine a few threads down.. so it sounds like I should only worry about the one that's 15 dollars more if I overclock it... So now I guess my question is, would it be worth the extra $15 dollars if it were overclocked?
Well I just clicked on the links you provided... and the $115 dollar memory is now only $105 (it's $10 off) - so definatley buy it.
You won't notice a difference in real world on your system... but what's another $5bucks?!
Yeah but I live in California, so newegg charges tax and the one that says $99 has a $10 off promo code.. so with tax the first one is about $100 and the second is about $115, making the difference between the two still $15. And if like you say there will be no real world difference then I think I'll just go with the $100 RAM. Thanks.
7-8-7-24 is faster than 9-9-9-24, but it's not really noticeable except in benchmarks. If you're not concerned about extreme benching and getting the highest scores possible then might as well just get the $100 RAM.
