What PC4000 RAM...?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, haveing upgraded most of my system, the RAM is next on my list. My current 2 x 512MB PC2700 is surely holding back my 64 3700! I have been advised to get PC4000 over PC3200 as it will cope with the 245MHz (ish) better.

I'm currently running at 2.53 GHz @ 230 MHz x 11 and VCore 1.4V. I aim to get to 2.7-2.8 GHz once i have the right components and enough knowledge to overclock higher.

I really don't know what to get as i've heard how buying cheap RAM will affect performance. Ideally i want 2 x 512MB for about 90 quid ($160). Any help would be great!

That is a good idea.. although i don't really know anyone on a personal level from over the pond

See, im pretty dead set on buying the G.Skill 2 X 1GB DDR500 RAM. Newegg have it for $159. The same RAM from a reputable company over here costs $266...!!! And so far i have only been able to find 2 sites that are UK based and sell G.Skill RAM.
