Which is better for me? OC'r/Gamer. Running with 5000+ BE and TForce 770 A2+

Or even Crucial Ballistix Tracer

Ballistix and Ballistix Tracer is the same execpt the Tracer comes with LED light, which my kids love it. I would go for Ballistix. It is $32 after MIR at egg.

Do you have any reasons for your suggestion or are they just better. Thanks so much.

Paid lots money to try different ram such as GSkill, OCZ, Crucial and Corsair when I tried to test cpu and board back to laste Nov. Finally, I settle down with Crucial and GSkill. For typical OC, you can get any DDR2-800 and they will work fine. When ram needs to reach 900+, it really tells difference. The standard Ballistix DDR2-800 is very stable. So far, I tried it on 7 different chipset boards. It can be OCed 1040 around 4-4-4-10 with 2.2v. I haven't tried the extreme OC because most of them are purchased for others.

Yep, I agree with the crowd. Ballastix is the way to go.
I've gotten mine up to 1300Mhz before, on 2.3volts!
Good stuff!

Newer ballistix are single sided...how does that impact performance? I remember reading about that.
