That is a bit expensive for D9s.

I'd recommend the G.Skill DDR2 800 HZ: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231065

Or the Xtreem DDR2 800: http://www.tankguys.biz/ddr2-44410-8...dfd393392e13c3

Those two kits are very likely to hit DDR2 1100 speeds w/o a sweat and you save $133 which you could use to upgrade to something else.

And yes, don't look at the Corsair XMS2, they're good and use D9s but they're way overpriced IMO.

All three highly recommended memory choices (xms, gskill, tank) are all about $300 for 2GB kit. XMS 2GB kit has a $40 rebate right now.

The thing is that all the high end memory sticks have the exact same chips as the Crucial I posted while costing as much as $80 more

Keep in mind that the sets recommended were for ddr2 800 while the Crucial is only 667.

You aren't paying the extra $80 for nothing.

It's the same D9GMH chips, Crucial could have attached a ddr2 -10000 tag and it would still OC the same as the ddr2 800 sticks

You'll be more likely the hit ddr1000 with the Xtreem versus the former.

Much harder for 667 to hit 1000 than 800 to hit 1000.

D9GMH is D9GMH, they'll pretty much all hit 1000+

A +3700 is a +3700, but not all will hit 3.0. There is a reason why chips are rated the way they are.

If you can show me a link where the Crucial hit close to 1000 i'll be satisfied.
