Hey im making a rig with p5b deluxe and e6300.
Very low budget for it.
Need your help.
2x1gb sticks that can oc like a champ for $225 or less.
maybe $250.
I see most ram going for $300 which is rediculous considering how that will become the most expensive component of this system.
Planning on hitting 450+ fsb.
Use the system for Visual Studio 2k5, file editing, etc. So it must be extremely stable.
Thank you in advance.

If you plan to OC like a champ, you will need to buy pretty good sticks. When your looking at the E6300 with a 7X multiplier, you will need pretty good sticks to hit DDR2 900+ speeds. $250 isn't stretching it too much, but your not going to get what you want for $225.

YEah, thats why i'm saying $250 isn't stretching it. I'll be selling everything I have soon and my memory will be about $250. Once I get enough rep, just look out for my For Sale thread.

Goodluck with looking btw. Hope you find what you want. You picked a really good combination of the E6300 and P5B deluxe. I have mine up to 3.4Ghz right now and planning to go higher soon.

IMO, buy the cheapest 2GB DDR2 800 set that will boot at 1.8volts, and if you ever get over a 400mhz FSB, use a divider (*GASP!!!!*).
