Default Just wanna make sure

I just wanna make sure this Newegg.com - OCZ Platinum 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
is better than this
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
before I buy. The reason I'm asking is because of the timings. Is 2-3-2-5 on the first one better than 2.5-3-3-6 on the second one?

oh dude.

Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

its like 15x better and 40$ cheaper than that ancient ocz stuff XD

but to answer your question I guess, the timings with that little of a difference shouldnt make any difference. go with the cheaper ones. if you really want ddr pc3200 :S

He wants DDR not DDR2. So dont make fun of other people when your the one at fault.

nothin a little elbow grease won't solve.

timings are slightly better on ocz while the crucials are slightly cheaper. I would just go with the cheaper one.

Instead of going with the cheaper one (Crucial's), I'd get the one that is actually compatible with your computer. Your call though.
