DDR3 1066 vs 1333 vs 1600


I was looking at the cheapest 6GB tri-channel memory on newegg and came up with Crucial 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1066 (CAS 7). My question is how much of a difference will 1066 vs 1333 vs 1600 make? In real world use will you notice the difference?

You probably won't see the difference between dual-channel DDR2-800 and tri-channel DDR3-1600 for every day applications.

I would not even lok at DDR3 below 1600 MHz

When you can have DDR2 running cas5 at up to 1200MHz, the jump to cas 7 or 8 makes a big difference.

dont thinking about. if you dont have a processor with a integrated memory controller so you wont see any difference, because the fsb will hold it back. in another case - the frequency is more primary i think, but with a endurable timings. %)
