With your original recipt, if you want to "step-up" to another card within 90 days, you may by just paying the difference in the two prices.

Check out EVGA's website. If you send the card back to them within 3 months following all the steps and hoops they tell you to jump through they credit you with the price of the card towards the purchase of a new EVGA card.

I am sort of in the same dilemma as you hybrid. Sorry, dont mean to hyjack your thread, but I was just wondering if you would actually see a big performance difference it getting 2x1 gig sticks over 2x512

Hi Hybridpyro,

My 2 cents for ram. Crucial Ballistix. I have a full 2 Gb and run tight timings of 2,2,2,6 at 215 fsb right now. They have been as high as 223fsb at these timings. Anandtech also has a review of memory timings vs high fsb..

Here's a link to a review of several types and you can decide from there:

I hope this helped, :-)

Hi again HybridPyro,

Here's a link to Crucial:
http://www.crucial.com/store/listpar...D6LRS&tabid=PM

The memory is for your motherboard and 1Gb is $136.99 USD. You mentioned that you have $200-300. So I think this is well within your price range. BTW - i've used this web site and it's excellent with excellent service as well. You won't be disappointed...

Take care, :-)

thanks alot
I was lookin at ballisitx for a while
but I want 2 gigs of ram
eh this is hard

455buick I love that site for my mobo
to bad there and arent 2x1gig modules or single gig stick that they "verify"
do u think that if I bought 2 ballistix sticks pc4000 or higher
and underclocke d em I could get better timings?

for mitchc05
yeah Ive heard for games and high intensity grapghics, 2 gigs give a HUGE boost over 2x512
and dont even get 4x512 if u can 2x1024

bringing 100-200 more dollars this weekend
ill be able to buy my stuff in a month or two at most

G.SKILL Extreme GBHZ = $197
get the ddr400 and OC it to ddr520 with 3-3-3-5 timings
