Default 4 x 4GB DDR2-800

NewEgg actually has these bad boys now.... 4 x 4GB DDR2-800

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231183

Who's in?



A little bit too steep for me at this price point ($1250), but once everything is x64 I will have a hard time resisting... it's only 3X the price of 4x2GB per GB...

Guaranteed to work on Intel P35 chipsets...

That is a good deal, but once you start getting into that 16GB range it might be preferable to use fully buffered RAM (because of errors).
New Egg also has some 4GB fully buffered DDR2 667 RAM sticks for even a bit less, about $259 each.
These also have good latency and CAS specs. I'm not sure how compatible they'd be with various chipsets though.

It's funny. For as long as I can remember buffered or ECC RAM has always been recomended for higher end memory configurations. It's just that back in the day 1GB was considered a high end configuration, thus "requiring" buffered or ECC RAM. Today 1GB is almost obsolete...

Anyway, I don't think P35 will handle those buffered sticks.

I'm looking forward to a 16GB upgrade in maybe a year, hopefully at half the cost.

i use this ram

http://canadacomputers.com/index.php...id=RAM.346.307

retails for $125CDN for 2x2. i won't have an interest in upgrading this until 64bit becomes standard (seems like we're still years away from that though).
