Why are you buying rdram pc-1066???

There is VERY LITTLE (1-3%) advantage in using RDram instead of DDR ram. Just make sure to buy a P4 board that can support DDR. And RD-Ram is far more expensive, and it never gets cheaper, (like DDR is about to).

Very true Zeradul..i forgot where i read that in.. PC2700 is the best DDR out there for p4 systems. Even better than 3200. Correct me if i am wrong.: peace2:

I have read that it is more difference in performance than that, and that rdram 1066 is the only way if you want to take full advantage of the 533 fsb. And how is the ddr vs rdram when it comes to oc?

:confused:

Wiggo ! Post that link you have referring to the performance of various top end mobo/chipset/processor combos. I don't think in ANY instance, PC1066 outperforms DDR by 5%. And that link he will post has a giant barage of benchmarks.

I think that ya maybe gettin' confused with that video card graph that I spam around here but here's another lot of benches from a different source, http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.html?i=1624&p=7 ,but remember that there is no one benchmark for chipsets and memory that's really goin' to give ya the full picture. : peace2:

Well RDRam is turning into dead end technology real quick. Only one board has adopted support for 32bit RDRam which means all other boards require all slots filled and modules to be installed in pairs, and it does not look like intel is going to support 64bit RDRam (PC1200 & PC1600), even though at the moment RDRam gives a VERY SLIGHT performance advantave (<%5) it costs about %50 more (for PC1066) and is inevitably going to be discontinued (in the near future)

see, I knew there was a reason I used Opera Browser - IT IS WAY BETTER!

(Opera Browser to IE is like DDR Ram to RDRAM :P)

edit: sadly opera crashed after posting this :( but, see all those windows I had opened, yes Opera allows you to return to where u were b4 crashing :D

I don't know why but I deleted my post but it took your's out as well and still didn't fix it. :confused:
Must have just been a "glitch" of some sort with the forum software at that time. *shrugs shoulders*
