    Hi Folks,

    Bit confused here, any ideas on the best memory to use;

    I was looking here at my choices (links to crucial)

    I'll be running something like an Althon XP 2800 and want to get the most from it... is lower CL levels better? 3200 over 2700?

    Any tips appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Toby

    CL2 (cas2) PC3200 or PC3500 is the best option for you. Also be sure to get name brands like Corsair, Kingstion, GeiL, OCz, or Mushkin

    Would crucial not be considered a "name brand"?
    I've always been pleased with the quality of thier product.

    I'd agree with Mr.C on this one, I've always been quite pleased with Curcial's RAM. While a lower CL is better, I've have never had a problem running Curcial's CL a lower than stock numbers, even when overclocked.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    personally, I've always considered Crucial RAM to be a high quality product.
    additionally, it is priced very competitively and the service is top-notch.

    No problem, I just wanted to confirm that diyfiesta was on the right path.

    Cheers guys, sounds good...

    Would Crucial's PC3200 CL3 be a better option than PC2700 CL2.5 stuff do you think?

    Cheers

    that would depend on the cpu you plan to use with it, and whether you plan to overclock it.
