read the reviews of those rams
384 of mostly 5egg reviews
and it has 2-3-2-5 timings on a 2gig kit

the pc4200 and 4400 kits have timings like 3-4-4-8 ,right around there
maybe 2.5-3-3-7 at best

Ha, if you can pump the voltage into these babies. They will smoke most ddr500 dual channel ram sticks. Here the G Skill bubas

Hope this helps,

Josh

well im sure that stuff screams...but i dont think he can pump more than 3-3.3 volts into it... so hes restricted by voltage settings leaving him with the gskill extremes or the ocz platinums...

so you guys won't go with the 4400 ocz? the reason i have been interested in it is because i read a couple reviews were they claimed it to be the fastes memory they had tested, also the life time guarantee is good up to 3.0v

it's also ddr533

Na, I didn't really even consider going from 1 gig to 2 gigs. I still probably won't for a while, but at least now I have an idea!

its ocz 4200 platinum ddr533. go to ocz technology.com, look in high performance, then platinum. also i googled ocz 4200 platinum reviews and found a couple sites that tested it. check it out tell me what you think . the hard part is finding a place to buy it. thats if its worth it.

is this ocz 4200 platinum ddr533 a good memory upgrade ? or would a set of high performance 3200 be my best bet? if the anwser to the first ? is yes were can i buy it?
