if you can, get something other than Corsair.
G.Skill, OCZ, or PQI are much better. especiall for overclocking.
out of those, G.Skill reaches the highest speeds

supposedly newegg only carries 1 other 1600x1200 CRT O_O and for that price you could get a nice 1600x1200 LCD widescreen ... any reason you want a nonwidescreen CRT ?

CRT: Newegg.com - NEC Display Solutions FE992-BK Black 19" CRT Monitor 0.25mm Dot Pitch D-Sub - Retail


edit: BOOO preacher lol
