True, but would it be better then for him to get 4gb (current) of 2133mhz ram, or 8gb of 1600mhz?

(or 16gb )

This^ or else get the 1600mhz.

4gb is fine for smp, never tried less than 6Gb with bigadv, more would probably be better there.
1600Mhz can still be overclocked to 1866 normally, as long as it isn't 1600Mhz with horrible timings so they can loosen a bit with higher frequency. Better ppd is nice but still not a gigantic difference or anything, 2133mhz is more $ & can be tough to get stable with 1155, wouldn't go that far unless you really like to play with memory overclocks.

I spent $150 on my Ridgebacks & consider it money well spent.

personally i get better performance by tweaking RAM timings than frequency, and btw, higher frequency usually means ur gunna get CL9 sticks, so basic timings, unlike my 1600 pair from OCZ that has very tight timings

A lot of people do have higher frequency rated kits, then run them at lower frequency & tighten timings. For chips with an IMC it makes it easier on the voltage to the mem controller.
It's hard to find high frequency kits with great timings now, I've spent more on ram than a lot of people spend on a decent rig, but worth it to me for high freq. with tight timing.

Thanks for the replies! I do fold a lot... But I just ordered the G.Skills Ripjaws X 1600Mhz 8Gb (4x2). How good will that be for folding?
Thanks!
