I think b1g said the evga model is cheaper. I'm too lazy to scroll up and check.

Yes....the evga model I suggested was cheaper, and has the same speeds as the ASUS.

I don't follow Crysis so I cannot say what would be good for that. Just can only relate that everything I have read in many different places says that if your a gamer at this point in time 2gb is more than enough. That's not to say that getting 4gb would be a horrible thing it just depends on if your willing to spend the extra cash. Alot of people like me are on a budget.

If he gets two sets of these:
Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
...and does the rebate...that's one heck of a deal! Thats about $140 for 4GBs of DDR2-800 ram!...if you do the rebate.

Nice find! How are they when compared to GSKILL HZs?

That would be a good deal, I have read alot of reviews about people putting in 4 sticks and it bogging down their machine. Why would that happen?

I believe Crucial Ballistix are as good as G. Skills. Crucial is a great brand too!...most people tend to stay away from them, because they were usually expensive....but that deal is awesome.

Read the rebate

"Limit one rebate per eligible Crucial Ballistix memory kit per household"

Theres ways to get around it.
