Do I buy PC6400 or PC8500??? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Micron makes 1066MHz DDR2 chips but they're not yet mass-produced and are quite expensive for the RAM makers to keep their memory kits within a reasonable margin.

Well, I just bought 2GB of Patriot Extreme Performance PC6400 today ... hopefully that should do the trick

I got them for £70 incl. delivery and that's a pretty good deal here in the UK.

thought 800mhz was the highest rated jdec or whatever you call that thing spec speed. after that it's just all overclocked 800chips that seem to run better.
