    "High-speed RAM may offer little real-world benefit over a cheaper solution"

    Unless you're planning on using an APU with sufficiently powerful graphics that they get badwidth starved. Like, say, trinity Given Llano showed significant performance gains right through to 1833MHz, and Trinity's IGP should gain ~20% performance through architecture enhancements (based on 5870 - 6970 comparison), and runs ~ 80% faster in clock terms, I'd say that "as fast as you can afford" should be the recommendation on buying memory for Trinity...

    Or get cheap RAM and a discrete card?

    They did say on the latest Intel platforms, which is reasonably true. Agree with you for Trinity though.

    This is 3 GHz RAM. I ssupect there will be a lot more than a £7 difference between 1600 MHz RAM and this stuff

    Best looking RAM I've seen, by some margin. Can RAM be good looking? I think I may have issues...

    a 4x4gb 3ghz pack of these will almost definitely cost more than half a $K lol, but any kit of these would be like a pack of tiny Aston Martins!
