Benchmarks: 266MHz Gaming Performance

Again we see that even in real-world environments there is nothing to be gained from purchasing the more expensive Crucial 2GB PC2-5300 (10th Anniversary) memory over the Corsair Value Select memory. There is also little to be gained when moving from DDR2-667 to DDR2-800 memory as we saw in the bandwidth tests. The 800MHz frequency produced just 300MB/s more bandwidth which equated to 5fps at 1280x1024 in Quake 4. Given the average frame rate was over 150fps, a 5fps gain is hardly significant.
