    I don't know, I don't really trust OCZ as much as before, when my friend's OCZ RAM performed worse than a lower clocked pair from Kingston....

    I like G. Skill, but make sure your mobo can play with it. I had to do some timing changes to run mine in dual channel

    That ram is not ddr2 800 which means it sucks. My friend used slow ram like the stuff ur showing us and then he replaced it with ddr2 800 ram and noticed a huge increase in performance. The cas latencies of these ddr2 modules are combated by higher clock speeds of ddr2 800

    There is not a big difference between DDR and DDR2 with performance....yes it adds some, but it doesn't dramatically help you in any way :) .

    I wasn't comparing ddr to ddr2 i was comparing that ddr2 to ddr2 800.
