The G.skill IMO will serve you best : http://www.bronet.com.au/Index.asp?p...D2&Loc=111HOME

The Other links dont work for me.

However you generally cant go wrong with G.skill

Also if you are going to get new ram I would go 2gb kit. As most games today need it. If you can find 'em the G.Skill HZ's are awesome OC'ers and are pretty cheap (got mine for $175).

Hi and WELCOME!
If you not increasing the volume I'd stay with what you have. Unless of course you find a steal of a deal in the ForSale section with some great OCing potential. Lots of great 2x512s have been available for very reasoanble prices in there.

Remember that the Total amount of system RAM is more important than timings and or Bandwidth of the RAM. As said I would reccomend getting a 2GB Dual channel kit.

Thanks for the replies. The other two links work but you just got to copy and paste the whole thing minus the [/url] bit.

The other RAM is was looking at if you cant get the link working was;

PC-3200 1024MB CORSAIR TWINX 184-PIN DDR SDRAM CL2 (2X512MB STICKS)

and

PC-3200 1024MB GEIL DDR CAS 2.5 (2X 512MB)

All 3 are around the same price range.

I just looked around then all the 2*1GB kits are around 400$ australian. Ouch. Im not sure if i have that much money to spend.

So its not worth it getting a proper set of 2*512 instead of my valueselect? or will it help my oc?

Cheers for the help
