Actually I think quad cores don't overclock as high as dual cores. I could be wrong. And you can achieve a good overclock, with just DDR2-800 that can overclock like beast, like the G. Skill HZs, which are cheaper. But it's your money.

of course not. the question is will it overclock far enough for it to not make a difference which one you get. from what i hear about the HZs you may as well get the DDR2-800 as you'll save a lot of money and still get a great overclock.
