If you dont overclock, the second, if you do, probably the second again, but the third would be good also.

I was going to get the 3rd because it has better timings then the second but what is more important for games and overclocking the mhz or timings? I need fast memory for my big games!

Well i went ahead and purchased:

2GB Corsair DDR2 TwinX (2x1Gb) 5400/675MHz, 2x128Mx64, unbuffered, 4-4-4-12, H/S, L/T Wty

This was because the timings are a lot tower (4-4-4-12 and the other was 5-5-5-12 and 5-5-5-8) overall i feel this would be a lot faster even though the other is 800mhz the timers are a lot higher And i have been told timings are important in overclocking and gaming

Was it the right choice (besides it been £70 cheaper lol )
