Need urgent memory advice

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
My friend wants to buy memory on the weekend and he is confused.
He dosent know what to buy?
Ive been going round in circles with him trying to expain memory.
I asked him do u want more memory or overclocking memory?
He said something in between.
And his budget is £210 for 2x1 gig sticks or £240 for 3 or 4 x 1 gig sticks
which have some overclocking potential.
He is a gamer and he has 2 x 256mb xfx 6600gt and at the moment but he has got some value selet ram pc3200

His spec is the same as mine besides his mobo which is the asus a8n32 sli

Can someone please advice me plz

Agreed with the G.Skill suggestion. Also, if my memory serves me correctly, I think I read somewhere that AMD's aren't too happy with all RAM slots filled, but maybe an AMD person can help out on that one?

You should be fine with 2 GB of RAM, and the G.Skill will be just fine, leaving him with money to spare.

Good luck
