it's DDR3-1066.....slower even than DDR2-800....
the second one yes, but it's for notebooks. ddr3-1066 is pretty decent for notebooks. the other is 1333, and i would bet could be ocd to 1600.

My god, what is wrong with you? Do you even read the article? 8GB for 1333MHz. 8GB kits usually go in the $200+ range for a decent set, so this is a good price. And how the hell is DDR3-1066 slower than DDR2-800? :laugh:


PNY? the video card makers?
Yes, they also manufacture memory products.
