How much difference $100 make?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am building a e6300 system with possibly the p5b-deluxe mobo.
My question is how much of a difference would it make between
the $300 2gb g.skill hz kit
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231065

would vs.

the $200 gb g.skill kit.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231087
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231098

Both are ddr2-800, except the hz overclocks better and has cas 4 instead of cas 5.

My goal is only 2.8 ghz, which would mean I'd only need 400 fsb.
Damn ram are expensive nowadayz.

Well for 400FSB I doubt you will see much difference between CAS4 and CAS5. Heck I bet you couldnt even tell the difference between CAS3 and 5. And they have like a $250 price difference.

No different or minimum different. CAS4 or CAS5 are almost the same on an Intel system.

There is the answer to your needs. You're going for a 400fsb only which means on a 1:1 and that's already what either of those two kits can run at, so if you don't plan on more or a mere 50mhz more, then get the $200 kit and save that extra $100 or put it towards a DX10 card.

Both at 4-4-4-12 and 2.1v, that's perfect start for stock and maybe if you decide to up the Vdimm to 2.20v, you could bring the timings down to 4-4-4-8. Or just change them w/o fiddling with the Vdimm, it could work.
