Default Re: Which Ram ?

the crucial ballistix tracers are good since they are double sided, while the normals ones have changed to single sided. but ur better of going with gskill, they have great prices and there ram is awesome for overclocking. NQ's are a great cheap set with good overclocking. with ocz, platnium is the best set there i think, but they are not as good for overclocking and gskill Nq's but if they are cheaper then i guess you could settle for them. im not really sure about the gold and the SLi is probably a waste becuase sli ready ram means nothing.

<<<Please give me Rep if I have helped you<<<

What is with the way you're coding your link, just copy and paste it from the top your browser, you're getting spyware in my PC by linking to HTTP.com

Your board can't use DDR3 so you can cancel that of your list, the 4gb one I would have recommended from TD, but thats discontinued now

So go with one of these:
Corsair DHX XMS2 Dominator Dual Channel 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800Mhz Memory TWIN2X2048-6400C4D at TigerDirect.com
OCZ Platinum Revision-2 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Dual Channel Memory (2 x 1024MB) OCZ2P800R22GK at TigerDirect.com
I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:
