As far as transfer rates go, *DUAL CHANNEL* DDR-266 and RDRAM 1066 are the same.

Latency is a bit lower on RDRAM.

But, Intel has dropped RDRAM support totally and gone with dual channel DDR. Their new chipset has an 800MHz FSB, using two DDR-400 chips.

They have???

I love RDRAM. I have PC800 and it's plenty fast, in my opinion.

I have nothing against DDR. I have another machine that uses it - P4 2.53, 512 DDR (unsure of the DDR frequency), but I think my RDRAM outperforms it (casual observation, no benchmarks).

it should be mentioned that RAM quantity is often more important than RAM frequency when it comes to system memory.
