Although 800MHz, DDR2-6400 modules have become incredibly cheap, there is a growing number of consumers who want to take advantage of native 1066MHz DDR2 support offered by the latest Intel and AMD platforms.

The idea for this roundup actually spawned by the smile on my face from the mere $80 I paid for a Crucial Ballistix PC2-8500 kit a few months ago.

Ten gigabytes in total will be put through their paces in the Icrontic lab.
