Default Another Ram Question

How much difference in performance would DDR2 1000 be from DDR2 800
I'm considering one of these:

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

I will be usign an Abit IP35 Pro, Q6600, TRUE120 and plan on overclocking. I think I might just end up buying the DDR2 1000 with just the $15 price difference.

Why not get ddr800 and oc to higher clocks?

EDIT: Does that look like a link? or am I just high?

Would 2 gb's of Crucial really give better performance over 4 gb's of G skill in Vista?

That thread didn't help at all. I am asking why Vernong recommended 2gb vs 4gb

Never mind I have found my answer in another forum. I overestimated the intelligence of the members of this one. Thanks anyway.

What answer? Maybe you are overestimating yourself.
