Default Which is a good ram to buy? must be under 150$$

Hey ppl,
I need some quick advice yet again. Which would be a decent Ram 1GB under 150$ to buy. Please give me specifics. I am currently using a Kingston value select (3.3.3.7 timing) so i need better than this. I need for gaming but my interests are from strategy gaming, to nfs underground to sports simulations so keep that in mind.

cheers

Well it seems to fit the bill
but
"This memory has been verified to operate at DDR400 (200 MHz at 3-4-4-8)"

Wouldn't that be slower than if i added to my kingston ram which is verified at 200mhz 3-3-3-7??

Aright, just so you know dude you will NOT notice a difference between 3-3-3-7 timings and 2-2-2-5 timings which is $200+ high performance RAM.

You sure as hell won't notice any difference between 3-3-3-7 and 2-3-2-5 so really you should just save your money. If your current RAM works fine then just leave it.

If you're thinking you'll gain a lot of performance simply from slightly tighter timings that's simply not the case man.

Especially if you already have a gig theres no point in buying more.

Like nubius said their's abosuletly no point unless your overclocking CPU \ RAM

A human will not notice the difference between those two sets of ram, and the difference is barely visible in even benchmarks
