Well he is my question. I am soon going to have the new quad-core the one releasing in January of 2008 and I want it to be one of the best systems. I am probably going to be using it to play games (latest games), some video rendering, some photoshop editing, and other basic usage, and in the future I might want to overclock the processor. I will most likely also have the GeForce 9 Series.

My question is that I am thinking about buying this RAM

but would it make much more of a difference than this RAM, even though both RAM are 800 Mhz.

Definitely.

It will take very fast RAM to OC these chips to their potential.
RAM rated at DDR2-1000+ would be a good start for that.

It takes quite a high FSB to OC the 1333 FSB chips.

wow thats pretty damn cheap for ddr1000 but who knows what the base fsb is gonna be on those chips it could still only be around 400 or so, and if you ask me you want a 1:1 ram ratio, but you could underclock the ddr1000 ram, and lower the timings drastically and for 4 gigs at that price it really aint bad
