Yes they do and they are the same price as well. Great memory. Looks like you need some as well.

If you look at it that way, then we dont have to have fast cpu's, multi gpu's or mechanical keyboards.

Stick to 8GB CL9, get 16GB when RAM gets better. CL6 or 7.

Mech keyboards are a requirement now?? And I HAVE to have a fast CPU, I'm addicted to folding. And I don't HAVE to have multiple GPUs, I run BF3 fine at 1080p with my single 6870. 4GB of RAM is plenty to run the game, as long as you're not like me and have a ton of Chrome tabs open and a HUGE iTunes library.

AFAIK my windows desktop and start up programs only take up 1.3GB
I sit on OCN sometimes for like an hour and I get a little pop up message from FF saying that its using up like 1.5GB's.
