in my current system, im running memory at horrible timings i believe they are something like 5-5-5-12. i wanted to replace that with something with a lower cas latency or something, but im a noob at matching memory to my system. i have a p4 prescott 3.4 @ 3.8 and currently running 240-pin pc 5300. mobo is a GA-965P-DS3<br><br>
anyone recommend good ram for this setup. keep in mind im saving for a conroe as well and was wondering what was still compatible for both.

Depends on your budget. If you have around $300 to spare, go for a 2GB G.Skill HZ kit, or if you only need 1 GB and can find a 1GB kit, get one of those. Either way, HZ is great. It's the one with the black heatspeaders <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"> They're amazing overclockers and can run at nice timings. They're also excellent combinations with a Conroe.

nice.. yeah, i just am a big noob when it comes to ram and such. i just like to make the thing run as fast as possible. money isnt really a problem cept for the girlfriend, ahha, but aside from that, most of my money goes into this computer of mine. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick out tounge caps"> the only thing i dont like about it is the ram and the cpu, so its like T_T GAHHH so i just have to wait it out til that next paycheck

Yep, so if budget is no problem, the G.Skill HZ is your best bet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
