DDR3 memory may not be worth the extra $$

DDR2 or DDR3? Which to buy? If you’re the hardcore gamer, you’re going to pick DDR3 but hold on there. The performance boost may not be worth shelling out the extra money. According to TomsHardware there’s only going to be a minimal performance boost (1-3%).

“Our conclusion is very simple: you get the best bang for the buck if you stick to the mainstream of the memory market, which currently is still DDR2-800 or 1066, preferably at low latencies. 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.” (tomshardware)
