I wan't something for my system for Christmas so I got two 2GB sticks of GSKill PC8500 (DDR2 1066) RAM.

Both sticks were seen as 1066 by my bios though I had to set the timings to 5-5-5-15, and both sticks passed 5 hours of memtest, no errors.

My AM3 score went up from 164 to 167, and all sims seem smoother.

That's a good upgrade, even 32 bit operating systems seem to benefit from 4GB with sims like FSX. I'm stuck with 2GB, but tempted...

I have the same RAM in the computer I'm typing this on. I've been very pleased with it. I think you will be also.
