    When are we going to start seeing 4GB memory sticks?

    exactly, that's pants. Bring on 4-8GB single chips and then SPAM about "NEW" products....

    Exactly gents, another reason not to jump on the DDR3 bandwagon.

    My current setup is a Q6600 with 6GB of DDR2 RAM. I'm sure I'll want more eventually... a few years down the line, perhaps. But whilst Paint.NET can use that 6GB up fairly easily, Ableton doesn't.

    Uh anyway, come on Corsair, start making some 18 or 24GB sets. THEN it'll get interesting.

    I totally agree. A while back I remember somebody saying there was a company making 4GB DDR2 sticks - I think called BlackKnight or something. With most motherboards handling twice the amount of memory you can actually buy to go in them 4GB sticks are needed...NOW

    I know that 4GB modules have been around for a little while now (at least in their SODIMM form)
    I got an 8GB kit this month for my Dell XPS M1330 to handle a couple of VMs that I like to run simultaneously.
    They're expensive though... (£300 for a PC6400 set!)

    Yeah you can get 4GB modules but they're just far too expensive ATM.
