one step forward for ddr3, 5 steps back for ddr3. it's just way to expensive, cl 5 is great considering the speed it's rated for, but 400 for one gb? :eek: ddr2 800mhz 4gb (2x2) can be bought for under 250 :shadedshu

sweet CAS speed, too damn high for the technology. Of course, early adopters will be in love with these.
