Default need fast help finding new RAM

well new egg decided that ehy wanted to jump all their RAM pricing up, so im looking at other sources. Heres one from zipzoomfly. It's patriot, says it's for overclocking, and it's 4-4-4-12. think it's good?

Eh...I wouldn't get Patriot. Heard some bad stuff from them.

Get G.Skill, or OCZ for OC'ing.


Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870

you know, i got the partiot 2x1GB Patriot 667 Mhz Extreme Performance from newegg and that stuff is sooooo worth it! Can overclock like a demon. And apparently uses the same chipsets as Corsair XMS. Works for me. and check out the reviews for this product at newegg too.

Patriot is underrated. severely.
