  1. ok, so im going to be getting rid of my 4x1gb sticks of ddr2 800 (pc2 6400)ocz platinum with 4-4-4-15 timings.

    i want a pair of 2x2 sticks instead of 4x1

    my motherboard being used is asus m3n72-d

    it can support up to pc2 8500

    my options im considering are:

    pc2 8500 (ddr2 1066) with 5-5-5-15 timings
    or
    pc2 6400(ddr2 800) with 4-4-4-12 timings

    im running the new phenom II 940.

    so wich ram would be best for my system.

    The 1066 mhz ddr2 will be the optimal choice for that processor.
