You should learn to use correct grammar.

"Too Good To Be True?"

But, point being, if you plan to oc' this is good ram, if you don't it's rather good still. DDR2 went so cheap becuase of DDR3 ...but who is going to utilize that? Maybe big coporations or servers or high end gamers...not the average consumer...we all still use DDR1

DDR2 is now the mainstream memory, DDR3 will only take a couple of months now that Intel 3 series is out and DDR1 is beginning to expire along with AGP.

Yes, I'm well aware DD2 is now mainstream, but if you look at the computers for sale...they mostly have DDR1, but i suppose if you wanna go with economics of it. it's is DDR2 since DDR3 came out...

whatever happened to ole' EDO...or the Turbo button...

Actually, AMD has pretty much dropped the socket 939 CPUs in favor of AM2 (= DDR2 only). All the current Intel chipsets also use DDR2; some of the third-tier chipset suppliers like VIA are selling Frankenstein chipsets that support both DDR and DDR2, but all-in-all I'd consider DDR "obsolescent".
