    I agree, more and more 4gb modules are showing up and the timings/speeds are getting better as well, but we need more of them.

    I'm looking forward to use them with sandy bridge or bulldozer... or possibly both :D

    The more I read about CPU's and Memory the more I want to wait to get em...
    This being a prime example...They are getting better and cheaper...
    you can now get a 8gb kit 2x 4gb for about $30 more than a 8gb at 4x2gb


    But GFX ehh..I'll probably get soon....

    Only good if you want to overclock the memory speed on an AMD board? :p

    If i had a ddr3 AMD board i would defiantly want higher rated memory speed that it supports by default as it would reduce the chances of the sticks themselves being a limit to the overclock, many boards support 1800mhz and 1866mhz so being slightly higher rated should easily stop them becoming a limit.
