lol this is the first time i've heard of gaming ram. no matter how fast your ram is, your frames are still going to be the SAME. There's really no difference.

That would depend entirely on the platform. Better RAM can add on plenty of important GB/s on AM3 platforms that can benefit gaming, along with a CPU-NB overclock to unleash bandwidth. In the newest AMD Fusion APU/FM1 platform, better RAM makes a MASSIVE difference (improving results by as much as 50% in certain tasks going from DDR3-1066 CL7 generic to DDR3-1600 CL8 performance).

Well DDR2 has hit lows no different than this before
I was expecting it to raise as of lately though due to the Japan incident affecting memory manufacturers. Instead the prices have just gotten lower and lower, so low that we can now get 2x2GB of DDR3-1600 CL8 for just $31 shipped

EDIT: Could I run 6-8-6? On what voltage? I'm at 7-8-7 right now.

Try it at the default voltage first, if that doesn't work use up to 1.75V but no further (and only as much as you need).
SuperPi is the tool to test memory stability in the OS, at 32M setting.

This only applies if you are using the IGP and comparing gaming performance. Most gamers on here will be using a dedicated GPU, so the effects of memory speed on the IGP are moot.
