Well you could just get a valueram and try overclocking it, you wont get great results though. I got my valueram 25 mhz overclocked without any problems, havnt tried going further.

A+ certified.
I now am on the interweb:

Alright, here are my suggestions for some RAM, depending on how much you want to spend.

Value RAM - G-Skill Value Series (2 x 1GB)...$148

If you'd like to spend a little bit more, this Muskin RAM is very nice.
Mushkin PC4000 (DDR 500, 2 x 1GB)...$199

Currently that Mushkin is on sale with a mail-in rebate for $199 at newegg. There is a review at www.xtremesystems.org that shows the Mushkin EASILY reaching DDR500 speeds, and many times going up to 260 MHz or 270 MHz. If I had to buy RAM right now, I would go with the Mushkin.

Yay Mushkin!

Anyway, my cousin has this GeIL RAM, and it made nearly 250 MHz (240-something) on his PC - I saw it! Not bad for $90.
