I have the Crucials, and from personal experience, they overclock straight to DDR2-1200 speeds.

Crucial Ballistix is a good performance RAM at a great price.

It's not that complicated. The basic steps are:

-Making the RAID driver diskette.
-Install the hard drives, to be RAIDed.
-Go into the BIOS and setup the RAID array that you want.
-Set the boot sequence, to have the computer boot off CD.
-Save settings, restart, and insert OS CD.
-At the blue screen during the Windows installation, look at the bottom. They will ask for 3rd party RAID drivers, and press enter.
-Insert the floppy RAID driver disk, and follow instructions.
-Then proceed to complete the OS installation.

Well what is faster
Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
or
Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
The first is 1066 but has higher latency not really sure which to purchase

You don't need the tracers, because they just have pretty lights added. The regular Ballistix is $20 cheaper, plus a $30 rebate.

Get the DDR2-800, because they will easily overclock to DDR2-1200.
