So I finally got my new mobo and cpu (i7 920, P6T Deluxe) and for memory I was gonna keep it simple with a 6GB set at DDR3-1333. However, I've just found out that the mobo supports XMP, so would paying extra for DDR3-2000 be worth it?

This is primarily a gaming machine.

Many thanks

And whats the brand/model of the mobo?? I take it you'll be using 64 bit, since you wont get 6 GB on 32 bit
