  1. What is good RAM. I was thinking about 5-5-5-15 DDR2 800. Is this good. What is faster. Please say timing, frequency, ect. I want to game. Is 2gb enough for gaming and Vista. I may OC my e6600 to 3.0ghz, so do I need special RAM.

    Any ram that works. You won't notice a difference that much with faster ram. And I don't recommend massing with timing etc...

    2gb is plenty for XP.

    1gb is the minimum for vista - more is recommended.

    please read the guide: https://www.techspot.com/vb/topic65114.html

    what about frequecies or latency. I just dont get it. After thinking I may not OC my e6600. Maybe after a year or so. I just don't get RAM. What is faster 5-5-5-12 5-5-5-15 4-4-4-12. Not any of those what is fast. How about DDR2 1100 or DDR2 800. Is there even a big difference!!

    Corsair XMS2 is the best RAM you can get!
