As the title suggests I am in the market for a 2 gig memory kit. I have not followed the latest and greatest in the past few months so I am a little out of touch.

 

What memory kit would you suggest for my rig? The only planned upgrade would be a eventual dual core. As of now my rig is stock and will probably stay stock (however I would like the ability to OC).

 

Currently I am leaning towards the OCZ gold kit. Any other suggestions before I head to the store?

can't go wrong with this, as well as there being 2 OCZ reps in this forum

 

and as good as the other memory modules might be, I don't see any of their reps in this forum ;)

 

ps: Gskill, OCZ, Mushkin, Corsair all use Samsung UCCC's on their 3-4-8-4 stuff, and Infineon on their 3-3-7-2 stuff...meaning they all make the same modules, so you have to go on price + support...and no one has support like OCZ

I'm deciding which to buy also.... If i'm not going to be overclocking the second one with tighter timming is the better choice, is this correct?

get the PC4000

 

you will want to overclock lol

 

99.4% of all that come in saying "I really don't want to overclock" end up overclocking at least a little

 

you've got a 4400+ like me (check both my rigs in my sig)

 

the 4800+ is what...almost twice as expensive?

 

the 4400+ will easily overclock 200Mhz to get to 4800+'s speeds

 

myself, one of mine is at 2400Mhz, and the other is 2500Mhz

 

both of mine will easily do 2750Mhz, but I find that to be overkill, and of course that ends up lowering the lifespan of the cpu by quite a bit more than a 200 or 300Mhz ;)

 

but

 

the PC4000 is the best choice

 

timings and dividers and CPC 1T or 2T etc...don't make a bit of difference honestly...unless you are absolutely anal retentive (and there are some that are!)
