PQI Ram help.
 
Hey guys, i got a little issue. This weekend i'm going to go and buy the final components for my new pc (CPU, Memory, HDD, and case) So about the memory. The shop I go to is pretty darn cheap, but he basically only stocks PQI ram. I want to know if there is decent PQI ram out there?
I'm looking to buy 2Gb of decent overclockable ram. Any help with model numbers would be greatly appreciated.

where u live? try newegg.com

are you really set on PQI? i just checked their site, and ugh... if you really want to OC i recommend newegg as well.

as far as what PQI has to offer tho, i could only find 2 kits of dual channel memory for 2gb. model # PQI24200-2GDB and #PQI3200-2048DB both have a lower latency than model # PQI25400-2GDB. but reviews from all show that quite a few of the boards were having problems recognizing either set properly. but none of these perform as well as the below items:

if you want a little more problem free, try some OCZ or Corsair from Newegg. more expensive, but more reliable. (minus a little manual settings, mobo rarely recognizes the true speed)

but....if you really must have PQI, go with model #PQI3200-2048DB

if that's a little too much in price, try just 1 gig, most will agree that 2 gig really isn't needed. there are a few that disagree (mainly Theyoyokid303 b/c of his BF2 ;) ) but if that's the case, buckle down for the more expensive :D

in any case, here's some cheaper 1 gig, alternatives:
OCZ
and MUCH cheaper:
Corsair

hope this helps :)

and if any of you Super Techies could back me up or correct me, i'm sure Lynch Hung would appreciate it :D

Be patient and order from newegg. You will be happy you did.

snick 02-14-2006 01:14 PM
