Default Another RAM question

I'm sure this is one of those questions that has been asked a hundred times... but anyway...

Im ordering some parts this weekend

Mainly an 8800 gts 640mb or 320mb, an asus p5b and some RAM.

The thing is, i cant decide on memory. should i go with ddr2-667 or ddr2-800. I dont overclock and will be using this computer for mainly gaming.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Since you're not overclocking, you can save money by getting DDR2-667.

Agreed with UA_Iron, go with that DDR2-800.

If you know this question's been asked so many times then why don't you search for it...

Anyway get DDR2-533 for not overclocking or DDR2-800 (or higher) for overclocking... simple as.
