Well, first off, id like to say referring to that post on the speakers and such, i didnt mean to offend you or piss you off, so id like to say sorry, i was being a smart ass that night and i apologize.

Id go with the G. Skill, because ive seen those reach 300+, but I think it would be safer if you can spend a little more to get the pc5000 G. Skill extreme series, it will give you more headroom so you can rule out your ram as the limiting factor.

Otherwise if you chose some other ram I would say the Geil ONE series.

"Best" is a very relative term; what's great for one system and use might not be optimal for others. Among the various pieces of information needed to answer the question are budget, proposed usage (expected maximum overclock), vdimm max on the motherboard, and desirability of portability to a future system. I'm not trying to be picky, but that info will help us pick the best RAM for your particular system. I'm not trying to give you a hard time by asking those questions; I'm just a big fan of not spending more than is necessary to get the performance you desire (e.g. who cares if the RAM can hit 330 MHz if you're only going to go to 250 MHz).

I'm going to be getting a new mobo soon (Abit IC7 Max3) and I have a 2.8northwood (533 fsb). But I want to be prepared for the future, so if I decide to go with a cpu with a 800mhz fsb, the RAM will run at its good timings, and still be capable for overclocking. I will probably get a 3.4 northwood in about a year, and hopefully I can reach about 4.2 ghz at that point.

I know both the OCZ and G.Skill are about the same price, but which is better?
