Best DDR2 for my system.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
What is the best DDR2 memory for my system shown below? I'm looking for performance here, please disregard price. currently I have 1GB DDR2 533 timings 3-4-4-7-2. This RAM came with my machine, I'm not sure of the brand, it says Super Talent on the heatspreader

Please review the system specs, if you need more info just ask, thanks.

If the heatspreader says Super Talent, then obviously the brand name is Super Talent.

The best thing you can do in your situation is get a new motherboard, CPU, and RAM, and then possibly a new video card. If you insist on keeping your current parts, which I wouldn't really advise, just get another gig of DDR2 533.

I will be upgrading to a new system in two years or so, I'm in college right now and don't really want to blow the money at the moment because I don't play much right now anyway. When I do get a new system, I'll be going all-out, price not a factor, but I can't do that yet so.

Just need to know the best performance DDR2 533 where I can get some low timings, ty

Unfortunately, DDR2-533 is in such an unusual situation right now that there is probably absolutely no difference in performance or overclockability in any of them.

I dunno, I guess just go with whatever 1GB stick you want. I would suggest Crucial, as I've grown fond of them. Here's a link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820161400

I would just get some more supertalent as it is pretty good stuff. Find some more 533 1 gig stick and put that in there.

If you are not looking to oc then pretty much just ifnd the bst timings you can and put them in there. Pretty much anything at stock will work.

If its the same one then just get that and put it in. Thats what I would do anyways. Itll be a heck of a performance boost going to 2 gigs.
