After an <i>"Oh crap, I'm gonna hafta clear my CMOS"</i> run-in with trying to make 4x512mb sticks run at the 1T timing, I've realized that maybe I should go to a 2x1gb RAM setup.<br><br>
Lots of people like to talk about Geil, G.skill, Mushkin, OCZ, etc. as their particular favorite type of RAM... as well as BH-5 and TCCD chips being the greatest for overclocking.<br><br>
So, I'm wondering:
<ol style="list-style-type:decimal;"><li>Where (other than NewEgg) can I find RAM rated higher than DDR400?</li>
<li>Which manufacturer's RAM should I be considering for a good overclock (but without breaking the bank-- I'd like to be able to afford it!)?</li>
<li>Along that same line, what are some good 1GB or 2x1GB combos that you all would recommend (and/or can you provide a link to a place that sells them online)?</li>
Thanks for the input and help. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

I couldn't make all your requirements, specifically DDR rated above PC3200. Do not loose heart, all three of the RAM listed aboce OC really well, especially G.Skill<br><br>
Try shopping at Zip Zoom Fly or Tiger direct.<br><br>
Good Luck!<br><br>
Darn! the Corsiar link did not save the navigation to your particular MoBo, sorry. It is a easy 3-step process though.
