Which 512MB stick of DDR2?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have narrowed my choices down to 4 options but am not sure which to get and I have to go right now so I dont have time to decide so I'll leave it up to you

G.SKILL DDR2 533 $36.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231016

OCZ Gold DDR2 667 $55.94
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227042

Corsair valueselect DDR2 667 $46.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145569

Crucial Ballistix DDR2 667 $95.00
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146557

Please consider price timing and speed (only the G.Skill is 533)

Also, I could just add 2 more sticks of the same RAM I have, its about $37 per 512MB and it is DDr2 533, should I do that since it is by far cheaper and since I am not even overclocking any more DDR2 533 should be plenty (I run it at 400 to be 1:1 with my FSB and it allows me to tighten the timings down to 3-3-3-8) in fact when I was overclocked to 3.75 my ram was only DDR2 500 and if I got my dream OC of 1066FSB which would give me 4GHz right on the dot, that would also be DDR2 533 on the dot

Well, it's ahrd to compare the g.Skill to the others......I mean, it's cheaper, but that's cause it's slower.

I would recomend the OCZ. Good timings, comes with heatsinks, reasonable price.

If you were going Corsair, the XMS series is only $7 more than the value select for the same speed and size.

Corsair 512MB DDR2 675


Timings are a little looser than the OCZ, but not much.
