What's The Best These Days?

Recommended Posts

I thought instead of just seeing what's for sale I'de ask the pros. I did a tiny bit of looking around and the best I found was PC4400 at 3-4-4-8(timings arn't [i]that[/i] great <_<) Also ran accross something odd, 2x1GB Kingston PC3200 [b]Value[/b]RAM for $919?? [url="http://overclockersclub.com/link/?http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=20-141-308&catalog=147&depa=1§ion=1"]Here[/url] it is.

Heh, you're right that the timings on the pc4400 isn't that great. That's because we've sort of hit a cap in terms of memory performance, so the only way to really make ram run faster (and pc4400 is REALLY high clock speed) is to relax the timings. I wouldn't be suprised if those 4400 sticks were really just some low-latency pc3200 running at really loose timings. I can't wait for ddr2 to come out for system ram. On the other hand, that's what we said about the geforce fx5800 ultra, too...

Anyway, that mushkin in your sig is pretty much the best ram available.

The $919 price is correct. 1GB modules are very expensive, even ValueRAM.

Edit: The MSRP on that 2GB kit is [url="http://overclockersclub.com/link/?http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/configurator/PartsInfo.asp?ktcpartno=KVR400X64C3AK2/2G"]$1143[/url]

yeah if you have the lvl2 3500 there is no better. ive seen a lot of 865/875 mobo owners ditch there loose timed 4000 stuff for the mushkin lvl2 and they seemed to really like the low latencys with a divider than the 4000 with 1:1

That's 2gigs of ram- very expensive- Unless your building a bridge or Doing heavy animation- no purpose in getting something that big-especially with at CAS 3.
