    There shouldn't be more than a ten dollar difference so why not?

    gets the 800's and over clock them, you wont see a noticalbe differance I promise you, plus 800's are cheaper!

    Im running my intel q9550 @ 4.0ghz and my ddr2 800's at 940Mhz and my system runs blazing fast and my ram is a 1:1 ratio with my processor, therefore it doesnt hold it back, go 800Mhz

    Just keep this in mind, you need to have a motherboard that supports 1066 in order to use it. Also DDR2 1066 is an overclocked RAM speed. DDR 2 was only ever meant to go up to 800. DDR2 800 is much more stable, has become a lot cheaper and and you can get much lower CAS latency's(CAS 4 is good)

    yea thats another good point, it is more stable and you get faster timings for cheaper!

    The ram i want has 5-5-5-15 which is really good for 1066. I found some G-skill ram on there... Seems people really like it anyone had experience with it?

    1. Both will NOT be compatible with 1 slot, make sure you buy the one compatible with yours
    2. The difference between the 2 should be quite noticeable when using many programs at once
    3. $10 upgrade is a good price

    ram quality difference is very negligible, the difference between a $100 and a $1000 ram is that the later will last maybe a year longer, but performance wise, you will not feal a difference. Where talking milliseconds of gain. I say go for the cheaper 1066.

    side note: from your original post it seemed like you already had ram and wanted to upgrade, that's why is said both won't work. Sorry if i offended you
