Hi guys :) 

I'm just looking to upgrade and don't really know where to go with memory, I had some dominator ddr2 in my current setup but I've read that the difference in real world performance of ddr3 1066/1333/1600 can be very minimal.

So my options are:

*Value 1x C-CMV4GX3M1A1333C9 @ £26.30
*XMS3 2x C-CMX4GX3M2A1333C8 @ £32.68
*Dom 2x C-CMP4GX3M2A1600C9 @ £47.21

I'm swaying towards the XMS3 and have no 1066 avaliable from the site I'm buying from.
Its to go on a ASUS P8P67 Pro with a 2500k. Am I right in thinking that 4gb should be ok for general use and gaming for now (I have 4gb in my current).
Also I've got a ASUS 6950 direct cuII (3 slot) card and I'm planning on either getting the same card to Xfire (if it will fit!!) or another 6950/6970 later.
Any advise on the memory primarily but any of the set up will be greatly appreciated as this is only my second build.
Oh yeah I plan to keep my current case but will probably get a Corsair 600t SE later.

It would depend on what games you are going to play. Some games take a lot of memory but as long as you are upgrading I would go with the XMS3 as long as it is compatitable with your current memory.
