For DDR3 I would get a set of these.
Newegg.com - OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory


260 after rebate and they are quite good.

Yeah the HZ's are no doubt good ram, but the platinum 2x2gb is a better deal and they are pretty good too. 800mhz aint too bad either

Thanks, what is the difference between what you suggested and the one I listed besides the price?

The price difference is low, and you can get a 4gb Kit

Thanks for all the help. I can't help but keep thinking about this... Is DDR3 worth it, yes, kinda, maybe? If not, when. What difference would I see between 790i/ddr3/q9450 amd 750i/ddr2/q6600 or q6700? How future proof is ddr3, etc...

You'd see absolutely ZERO difference guaranteed. DDR3 just isn't worth it yet. Just as DDR2 was terrible when it first came out, 333mhz DDR2 with 4,4,4,12 timings lol
