Blue.

green is there bottom line
blue there middle line
Black top of the line.

depending on your use, blue can get some good speeds.
mine runs at the advertised 2-3-3-6, and since Im running under 200mhz fsb I could actualy probably tighten those timings up.

thats realy going to depend on what you want to do.
green is ment to be a good stable & reliable everyday ram
blue will do light oc'ing well and be stable & reliable
If you want to do heavy oc'ing Id recomend black

all in all its a decision on your part as to what you want to do with the system.

Depends on the application. You can survive pretty well on 512MB, especially with some Windows tweaks to keep memory usage down, and the higher rated line will probably be faster (tighter timings) and/or overclock more. But 1GB of RAM is almost the minimum for the average gaming machine these days.

Start > run services.msc Look through there (read the descriptions) and diable any services that you don't use (some of them are pretty stupid). Then run msconfig and hit the startup tab and uncheck anything you don't need to run every time the computer starts. Saves a lot on memory useage and processor cycles.
