Good deal...but why are you awake at this time!?!

If you are going to the trouble of upgrading to an i5 or i7 motherboard, why would you want the slowest DDR3 available?

You would want to get at least 1333Mhz ram, preferably 1600Mhz or 1800Mhz.

Only i7 uses triple channel RAM but I know what you mean about the speed which is why I didn’t bother posting this deal.
They do have PNY 1,333MHz for £10 more - Play

You are Wrong !!!!

DDR3-1066 and -1333 memory do not yet result in better performance, and so should only be considered by hardcore enthusiasts, who aim for maximum overclocking performance knowing that they will get little benefit for spending a fortune.

Well yes ideally, but if your on a budget (as most people are) and the performance difference is tiny. Indeed the only way you would notice between these and the PNY's is in benchmarking and then there would be tiny differences as most of the cheap ram is CL-9. Unless your going to overclock or use it for things like encoding then it's not worth the extra.

CL7 cycles @ 1066 megacycles/second = 7/1066= .0066 *10^-6 seconds or 6.6 nanoseconds

CL9 cycles @ 1333 megacycles/second = 9/1333= .00675 *10^-6seconds or 6.75 nanoseconds

So in general use where the none continuous use is the norm there will be nothing between them and certainly not the 12.5% price premium.

one hell of a deal (Y)
