DDR2 Buying Help

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi

I've just ordered an FX62 (AM2) & ASUS Crosshair Mobo (AM2) but I'm stuck on chossing the right memory.

I've always been a fan of Corsair but want to know what you guys think, or if you have better experiences with other manufacturers. My budget for RAM is approx 300 Pounds.

I've been looking at Corsair DDR2 XMS Series and the XMS PRO LED Series, I have XMS PRO 4400 in my machine right now and I love it.......any ideas??

Cheers

For 300 pounds, the Mushkin Redline PC8000 or the Corsair Dominator PC8888 is looking good.

If you wanna be normal XMS2 PC6400 is good stuff as is OCZ Gold.

The titanium stuff is for servers. OCZ's best is the Platinum XTC PC8000.

And the dominator stuff goes to 1159 effective, so thats awesome.

GeIL Multispec is pretty good too... See if you can get your hands on that stuff.

The G.SKill PC2-6400 2GBHZ is great RAM as well. If you want really expensive RAM then the G.Skill PC2-8000 would be great, or the OCZ Alpha PC2-8000

Thanks for the advice guys but I've had a change of plan.

Cancelled the FX62 for now, I'll wait til after Chrimbo (thats when the Dominator is released in the UK) to get 2 gig 8800 Dominator and put the rig together then.

I've just bought a S939 FX60 for 300 quid (I'm in Dubai right now and its very cheap). Gonna get the best out of my current setup until January then go AM2 or Core Duo crazy!
