I'm no overclocking guru by no means, but my PC has been freakin out lately because of it. After going through a couple of test, it turns out to be that my memory is kinda weak (look at sig). Probably the only thing I have no clue about oveerclocking is memory and I need your opinion.

NewEgg.com has this memory pack on sale today and I was wondering if it was any good.

Latency looks pretty low and I think this would definitly out perform my current RAM. Now, if this wouldn't do me much good, can any suggest some memory for $150 or less with this same specs (2x512, dual channel, PC-3200)?

I think thats about the best your gonna find for under $150. Corsair Value is good memory for the money, lifetime warranty, CL 2.5 isn't bad.

Yes thats excellent memory. Fastest Corsair you can get and not be XMS or DDR2 series. Runs 2.5, 3, 3, 8 at 200 mhz which is pretty good. My XMS PC3200 memory which is $25 dollars more per 512 stick runs 2, 3, 3, 6 timings at 200 mhz. Not huge difference. I am not sure how well it overclocks, but if its anything like other Corsair memory it should do great. It gets 5 star reviews from most everyone who bought it at NewEgg :)

I just got 512 megs of this memory for my dads computer. Worked perfect first try. Also has lifetime warranty which Corsair actually stands behind, so no worries at all.
