  • moussengIs $35 too much for 8GB of low-voltage DDR3-1600 with heatspreaders...?

    Agreed. You kinda have to be a cheapskate to think RAM is expensive right now.

  • There's no major reasons to get such high speed DDR3 with heatsinks, unless if you're using an APU or some other memory-bandwidth intensive software. But APUs are budget chips, and pairing it with high priced RAM makes little sense compared to a budget CPU with a mid-range GPU.

  • If the 2400 mhz ram is cheap, it will be great for APU users :P I hope it's cheap.
