New RAM?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I'm going to overclock my E6300 and was wondering if my current GeIL Value 667MHz RAM is likly to hold me back? I'm using a Gigabyte GA-965P-S3 board with air cooling. If I need new RAM, what would you recommend? My max budget would probably be about £200 for a 2Gb kit, though ideally I'd like to spend less. All help is greatly appreciated!

You mean this?

It's slightly over my budget, but would it be worth the extra over these three kits:
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=MY-017-GS
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=MY-058-GL
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=MY-072-OC
Which out of those three would you recommend, or is their a better kit available for under £200?
(it's okay to post links, right?)

Those cellshocks are only 189, you stated you budget was 200? Yeah, I guess they are pretty expensive.

When you include VAT, it goes over his £200 budget
