Which of these are the best choice for my purposes?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I’m building a new rib around an e6400 and P5B. I only want to spend about $200 for 2GB of memory. I’d like to do some mild overclocking.

Which of these would be best for me? I appreciate any help.

What are the memory timings for each one?

The best one seems to be the OCZ Platinum Revision 2... PC2 6400 at 4-4-4-15.
Once again...

Anything Corsair or OCZ rated under PC7200 contain either Promos or Elpida, value RAM basically. The Mushkin have Elpida chips and I don't know what the Crucial in OP have

The best choices are the Crucial DDR2 1000 kit that MADMAX22 posted or the Firestix series

BUFFALO Firestix 2GB $242

I like the Buffalo Stix. They have D9 chips I believe. But they're just a hair out of my range.

How about:

1- G.SKILL 2GB 2GBNQ DDR2 800 $215

2- G.SKILL 2GB 2BGPK DDR2 800 $199

Now, are you getting a P5B (vanilla) or a P5B Deluxe? Or the P5B-E?

And I think I like better option #1, GBNQ.

I'll be getting the P5B deluxe.
