At £300+ the benefits of a second gfx card will always outweight the benefits of faster ram. Surely any reasonable PC6400 ram can max out a core 2 duo, no need for extra bandwidth.

Yeah, but if you're already sitting with a QX6700/X6800 under phase change and a pair of 8800GTX cards, there's not much else to max out other than the RAM. I guess this has a very niche market (just as well given the (lack of) supply) but for those people, who just HAVE to have the fastest of everything, this RAM might let them squeeze the FSB up another couple of MHz.

I agree, I doubt anyone with the money for this ram is worried about money at all. They're most like maxing out everything in their system no matter how small the benefit is. If I had that kind of money i would happily buy it, but sadly I don't.

Sometimes you need to manually set the RAM timings to get the correct speed. Did you set the timings or are they on auto in the bios?

Nice RAM but eh I think I will pass.
