Default high bandwidth DDR1 memory...?

Is it worth the price premium? I was specifically looking at DDR500 2gb dual channel modules to stick with my A64 3800+ and Biostar TForce mobo.

The higher bandwidth would help overclocking too right?

If you keep the FSB @ 1:1 it will help. Try getting Cas3

yes it will help majorly, gives u headroom to oc ur fsb by 50Mhz while leaving ur ram untouched, but u will need sufficient cooling, remember that. although im not really sure of that boards OCing capabilities.

thanks for the help guys

I think I'm gonna go with my ASUS A8N Sli I have laying around anyway.

will cas4 versus cas3 latancies really make that much of a difference?
