Hi all!

I need to upgrade my RAM on my DFI nForce 4 Ultra D. I was thinking about ditching my 2x512 OCZ and putting in 2 sticks of this:

Patriot Signature Line 1GB 1X1GB PC3200 DDR400 CL3 184PIN Memory DIMM W/ Heatspreader

Anyone think this is a bad idea?

If you overclock, this stuff may not be the best. I've had personal bad experiences with Patriot mem although of course ymmv.

The problem is I can't find anything better than this stuff ...

Wish I had paid attention better when I bought the machine and read the fine print that said you can't run 4 sticks of RAM ...

This one will be ok but costs more.

This one is also very good but if you really want to spend the money I would recommend the above Mushkin kit.

This is a good buy.

I've had great luck with those sticks, this is with 2.5v:

Of course, YMMV.

I would love to get 4 GB running! Do you play many games ... I'm wondering about stability under hard load?

Not much gaming other than Civ4, from lack of time, no stability problems though.

Prime95, going on 22 hours:

Command rate has to be set to 2T, and all 4 sticks have to be identical.
