    Default Buying new RAM

    Hey guys well I have decided to buy a new 1gig kit of dual channel ram since I am selling my current ram to my friend (MIKE) for $70 and i have $30 giving me enough to buy ram for $100. I am looking for extream ram, I mean like ram that could oc like crazy with low timeings. I wish i could get 2 gigs but i don't have enough to buy one. Also the ram has to be from newegg. Thanks Alot!

    I bought a Corsair XMS DDR 400 1 gig dual channel kit a few monthes ago. It has some pretty low timings and it works flawlessly. It made a huge difference from when I used some mismatched ram. I love it and would highly reccommend it.

    You could try OCZ, but it would cost too much. You could also look on Anandtech for some good deals. I'm sure plenty of people are selling their old systems and going to DDR2.

    I agree, I own the same. Right now I'm running 2/3/3/6. The thing I noticed is that the black heatspeader ones are alot better than the sliver when it comes to Corsair.

    I run XMS3500 and it will run up to 230mhz at 2-2-2-5 timings. I have the silver spreaders.

    Patriot XBL-K ram is amazing for the price as well. I wouldn't get Kingston or Corsair, but that is just my opinion as it is good ram. I only buy OCZ as their customer service is the absolute best anywhere, period. Newegg if definitely your friend.

    Why would you not get Kingston or Corsair? They are probably the 2 most popular enthusiast RAM manufacturers out there. I bought my RAM second hand, but as far as I know they still sell it on Newegg.com

    Here is what I have: CORSAIR XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit System Memory

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145450
    It's out of stock at $103.

    Here is what others have suggested: Kingston HyperX 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit System Memory

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820144114
    $93.99

    Whichever brand you choose, go with Newegg. They are the absolute best at pricing and service.
