It's hard to say - I'm not that experienced with overclocking RAM. I could be very wrong, but it seems like going from 1600 to 2000 MHz would be a lot easier than dropping CL from 10 to 7. Newegg recently had the set I linked for 189.99 but now it's listed as deactivated.

And I can't seem to get a clear answer as to what's better... 2000 vs 1600 or CL9 or 10 vs CL7. I don't think alot of people really understand memory and I also get the feeling it doesn't make that much of a difference, otherwise more people would.

MetalBeerSolid: Thanks. I guess I got that from the reviews I read. You are correct. I probably don't need that much and I thought long and hard about it. Looked at some less expensive ones but I wanted something that runs cool and quietly and this got great reviews. True, I don't game but I was thinking of the future a little and thought my son may do some. I may also purchase a large monitor in the future. I didn't want to go all out though but I wanted to be safe and not regret my purchase with something underpowered.

Edit:

I see your suggestion. Thanks, that is an amazing deal. I will look at it some more.

I think you are right that it may not make much difference. From what I have read, many say you won't notice those small differences except in benchmarks. Still it is fun to benchmark and see those higher scores.

Well I guess if your son might be gaming, and you want cool, you'd be best off with this:

Personally, I'd get 2x 2TB drives instead of that 3TB one. Plus I recall hearing about issues with sata controllers and 3TB drives, not sure if it's been resolved with the new motherboards. In any case, 2x 2TB drives should be cheaper than a single 3TB, so why not?

Thanks again. I will look at both of your suggestions and could save a bundle.

Thanks. I'll have to look into that. I don't think the 2TB version is out yet but I could wait. I did look into it. I found the 3TB for $220 so that is pretty good. I remember paying $300+ for the 1TB I have now.

Not sure what you need 3TB drives for, perhaps you really need all that space. If not, then the best bang for buck (with regards to both size and performance) right now is the Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB - which can be found for under $60 if you shop around. It's probably the fastest 7200 rpm mechanical drive. My local Fry's had it today for 54.99.

I save a lot of RAW files in my photography and they can add up fast. Also, I save a lot of Ghost image files. Sure it would take a while to fill up 3TB but that is what I thought last time I bought the 1TB and I am constantly deleting things on it now. $60 for 1TB sure is great. 3TB for $220 isn't too bad considering it is a new product and with SATA 6Gb/s. So I hope it will be fast
