    I'm no expert on clocking and timings....

    But the two screenshots of the DDR2 timings seem a bit odd to me.....especially the fact that the DDR2-800 is running at 2T?!?! That's going to hurt the benchmarks on its own, I'd have thought....

    Its incorrectly reported as a X2, its really a single core 3500+,

    Hmm, just thinking, could DDR2 667Mhz, underclocked at 533Mhz or lower, be able to run at decent latencies, while still providing extra bandwidth? Performance might not be so bad with DDR2 then?

    /end n00b question.

    DDR2 can run decent timings at 667 and above, Corsair have sticks that do 330mhz+ at 3/2/2/8 and when AMD get into full swing with DDR2 it will be reasonably cheap too.
