I was wondering the same thing. I'd be interested in the Viper Xtreme 12GB (3 x 4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 memory kit if it was in the $400 range.

I also like the CAS 6 of this G.Skill RAM

I just ordered two sets of them for a total of 8GB for my next build. (it's gonna be hard to not install these into my current PC's when it comes in)
