Default A good OCing RAM?

how about this?

OCZ Titanium 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) System Memory - Retail

Would there be a cheaper, better type of RAM? Or should I get this?

OCZ Gold Edition 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 500 (PC 4000) Dual Channel Kit System Memory - Retail

The DDR500 has a better warranty (they will back higher voltages).

I'm not sure which DDR400 kit you have but a few models like GX are the same as the DDR500 but without the support. They also test the DDR500 better.

i say don't get either get the g.skill GBFX if u want some reasonably priced good overclocking 512mb sticks (the pack is 2X512)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231035
those sticks are gaurenteed TCCD so u should hit 500mhz no probs and quite a few have hit 600mhz

if u want to go the gaurenteed overclock path then these rock
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16820231015R

and for 2gig goodness u can't beat these
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231021

only thing to remember is that g.skill workes best with dfi and msi work fine on the whole
enjoy


if u must get 1 of the two above then the second will allow u to overclock while the firt won't (the titanium serieris have been below par overclockers from what i have seen) if u wanna oc then get the top but it would be better to get g.skill
