crucial ballistix is the best, followed by patriot, then ocz.

Overall, there will be a difference from using Kingston value ram 800 and one 667 to using two gigs of a high grade ram.

Thanks

I have the AMD 3600+ CPU which is said to be quite good for overclocking, not sure how much it is held back with the kingston value ram. I may also move this CPU to the new build and upgrade my CUP, wow, seven months with a new system and I am already upgrading.

Thanks for the help, I am looking into Crucial Ballistix, there is even a rebate, which I normally hate, since the overall price is good, I will think of the rebate as a bonus.

yeah i get what you mean, i just prefer those brands over g.skill, for some reason it feels low quality, even though it isn't. well its really up to u what brand u get but crucial's are very good.
