The performance difference between the memory is unnoticeable without benchmarking. It's more worthwhile to pocket the $30.

If you can wait, then wait. I won't call myself a fan, but I've supported AMD since the K6-2 and have personally been using AMD since 2001, but I couldn't wait for Bulldozer any longer. The delays were getting comical and I actually have work I need to get done before the end of the month. I had reached the point of refusing to post-process RAW photos on my old gimpy computer because it wasn't worth the aggravation. I made my move less than a month ago and the time and price was right to go with Sandy Bridge.Edited by Snakecharmed - 8/1/11 at 7:04pm
