Aight, I'd like to know if it's the best bang for buck atm :

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227210

If it ain't send my another link please!

I need to know one thing. The timings are freaking low on that ram. I know the lower the better but is there a significative difference between 2 gigs of 3-4-4-8 and 2 gigs of 2-3-2-5?

Approximatively what % of increase in performance does it gives comparatively to the 3-4-4-8 set?

The thing is that I've saw the 3-4-4-8 set a bit cheaper... so I need this question answered before I decide.

Also would such timings work on my value mobo?

If you plan on overclocking, that's some decent ram. That' s better than decent actually. I would go for it. There is a bit of difference with tighter timings. It's not really discernible by you or me, but our computers can tell, and things run more smoothly. Also it giver more wiggle room with your ram to tinker as well.

i bought the the 2-3-2-5 ocz's and have been relatively happy w/ them. they are definitely a step up from the 1 gig value ram i was using. it did take a little tinkering w/ the bios to get them to run at the stated timings, but eventually they settled in.

at 2-3-2-5 i couldnt oc hardly any at all, only about to 204 and still boot up stable. loosening to 2.5-3-2-5 is what i have it at now at 225.

i also loosened everything up to 3-4-4-10 and i still couldnt go any higher than 230. that was kinda disappointing, but still running 2.5-3-2-5 @ 225 is not too shabby.

i ran sandra on both of the timings and the 2.5-3-2-5 @ 225 was much faster than the 2-3-2-5 @ 200. i think in this case the timings contribute relatively very little to the overall speed, it mainly ends up depending on the overall frequency of the ram.

good luck w/ the purchase. i dont think you can really go wrong w/ either set!

ps- lots of people have been having some really good results w/ the gskill 2 gig sets. you might wanna have a look at them too

oh, also, that one day sale that theyve been having for the ocz's has been going on for a while now so you probably are ok to wait for a little while to consider your options. i bought my set on 2/14 @ $225 and then they lowered them the next day to $200

ever since then theyve been hovering right around $200 before rebate. good luck w/ the purchase and let me know what u decide

It's really good RAM, but it can't go over 234MHz @ CAS 2.5, it limited my CPU OC to 2.85GHz

I just sold my set and got a 2x1GB DDR500 set.

If you dont plan on OC'ing a lot and need the 2GB then it's a good set
