ok, ive searched the forum and ive decided between these memory kits:

Mushkin 2 gb

GSkill 2gb

i have to buy from newegg because they have agreed to take my memory back and give me credit towards some new ram. ive heard OCZ are really good too, but i dont know if they perform as well as the Mushkin and GSkills.

im gonna use this memory o/c my opteron to hell, lol. i dont think my Corsairs are cutting it. any other suggestions? thanks. im trying to stick to a ~$220 budget if possible. thanks.

ya the ocz has really tight timings for their ddr500 also, its a little more expensive than the mushkin though... but its up to you and how much $$ you are willing to spend

my voltage actually is there too, lol. ive run Prime 32M and prime95 for over 48 hours, stable as a rock.

im really thinkin of the GSkills. ive read some really good reviews about it and it looks like people have gotten these things up to 285 MHz. hm....im wondering if maybe i could do 3.1 GHz with these bad boys.

what do you guys think of this OCZ 2gb kit?
