    Default Suggestions on new RAM?

    my specs are to the left but i want better RAM as i think what i have is kinda the lower end of RAM when it comes to DDR2. I was looking at some OCZ stuff but wasnt sure. also the mobo can support Dual Channel up to 1066Mhz DDR2.

    OCZ is usually much more affordable than Corsair and I've never had a problem with OCZ either.

    I have owned all of them, and have also had problems with OCZ and Corsair, two that I have never had a problem with is Patriot and Super Talent. If you do end up having problems, OCZ does replace their modules faster then Corsair so that's something you should also think about . I know Tiger was selling 2Gb kits of OCZ PC6400 for $9.00 right before Christmas, but I am not sure what they are asking for them now.

    Crucial Ballistic or Ballistix Tracers are excellent RAM modules too. They overclock excellent as well.

    Crucial sticks are typically some of the best overclockers on the market, bar none. Considering their parent company is Micron, and all the best OC'ing chips are Micron.......it's no surprise they get the best of their own chips

    Not only that but their modules are black colored PCB on their Ballistix and black Ballistix Tracer modules. (or blue, or green, or red PCB, depending on which heatspreader color you order for the Ballistix Tracer line.

    I've basically been using Mushkin (DDR, DDR2, and DDR3), Crucial (DDR2 and DDR3), and Super Talent (DDR3) exclusively for RAM ever since I started building my own rigs and have only once had a 1GB DDR-2 Mushkin module bust on me (which was my fault to begin with), which they were sold out of so I returned the entire 2 x 1GB DDR2-1066 kit to them and they ended up sending me a 2 x 2GB DDR2-800 kit instead (and needless to say, I was overjoyed!).

    Other than that, I've found that Mushkin pieces are overall excellent quality and good overclocking modules, also that Crucial is just some of the best memory you can ever hope to buy (their Ballistix and especially Ballistic Tracer line are just (and I hate using this word) elite, and finally (and while I've only spent a little time with them) - the Super Talent DDR3-1800 Project-X memory line is also very good.

    Oh and I had a Kingston Hyper-X 2 x 2GB DDR2-800 kit that worked flawlessly and still does (I sold it to a friend who's running them still on an EVGA 680i board with no problems.

    Hi GK1, Welcome to the forums!!!

    The best 6GB kit of ram on the market right now is the Corsair Dominator GT DDR3-2000. Or at least, they have been overclocked higher than any other memory to date. I'd either go with those or the OCZ Blade Series DDR3-2133 memory.

    Lets start with how much money you have to work with and take it from there, the Blade series is over $400.
