512mb RAM GEIL Golden Dragon Dual Channel Kit 2x256meg
Hello, i have seen this advertised and just wondered if anyone knows anything about it, i have heard of GEIL and i know they are very good but is this anygood, is it a special or limited addition kit?

Also i am currently running Corsair Value 1gb.. yes i know crap
. But will i see a vast improvement running 512 of this dragon geil than my 1gb of value? The geil is pc3200 400mhz.

Thanks

Well, as its PC3200 it will allow you to OC your current CPU a bit, but if you upgrade to a barton (200fsb) it probably wont overclock much further than its default 200mhz as this ram is more for looks than raw overclocking.

Try some of the Geil Platinum stuff....now that rocks

Whats your budget... Once we have that we can string off a whole load of decent ram you could buy.

Get a 512 stick now, and then get another 512 stick of the same type later...

You do not need to buy a "dual channel" kit to run dual channel...just two sticks of the same speed ram.

Sorry bout the expensive ram, didnt know what your budget was.

overclock.co.uk has some good PC3200 for 60-72...
