    Depends really. Dont expect to be able to overclock very well. Also dont expect it too last too long. It will work at whatever speed its rated but dont expect any more!

    Pretty much itl be no frils RAM

    What kind of RAM are you looking for? As lecsiy said it will run fine at stock speeds, but overclocking wont work well. You should take that into consideration of you want to get the most power out of your system. Of course many people don't like to overclock, and if you don't then you're fine.
