DDR2 800 vs DDR2 1066

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
how much performance difference is there between the two? right now 1066 costs about twice as much ($48 vs $25) for 2 gigs, but its still pretty cheap i guess. is it worth upgrading to 1066? what about 1333?

The 1066 definitely gives you more overclocking headroom. But your Ballistix are EPP rated to run at DDR2 1000, so something like the Ballistix at DR2 800 will kind of give you the same assurance when overclocking.
