tracers have led's on them. and the two mobo's you selected are the same

i plan on this mobo, but the ds3l is a quality board, just not as hefty on the ocing features. Newegg.com - DFI LANPARTY DK P35-T2RS LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Your welcome. The information I provided you is probably your best bet for performance vs price.

Happy computing!!

No they weren't... the DS3P has 2 PCI-Express ports, while the DS3R has only 1.

he was right...

I have the tracers you posted and they work fine, ~850 MHZ @ 4-4-4-12

LEDS light up beautifully, especially when under load

the regular ballistix are 30 bucks with the MIR though... just get that

I'd say its relatively similar, probably no noticable difference at all... ask for a second opinion though

I'd definitely say 2x2 would be better because of less heat (4 sticks generate more heat then 2 does) although if you go with tracers, 4 sticks = 4x the leds

i would get tracers if your case has a window
otherwise i'd just get a regular pair of ballistix
also i didn't get a MIR with mine :/

haha, well with my current case I cant see inside, but Im thinking of getting a new full tower case when I upgrade, but I have to look more and find one i like


so 2x 2G of Crucial Ballistix would be my best bet?
