Default Re: Choosing ram, is Corsair 1600mhz Vengeance the right choice?

I meant to ask.

Is there any real advantage to me getting more expensive ram than the Kingston value 4Gb DDR2 667Mhz I have?

I mean, I've got a 1333Ghz FSB which is 667 ram rated. What's the point?

for overclocking your cpu if you cant un-link, if you have no interest in that then there's no point.

If you do I have 2 sticks of 2gb Dominator at a decent price

more expensive PC2-5300 would be completely pointless.

You're rocking a 1,333GHz FSB????? HOLY CRAP! Is this Intel's Next-next-next-next-next-NEXT-gen chipset? 1.3THz... I can't even imagine!

My 4gb stick came today (with my PSU, Corsair TX850v2) and I didn't even have to pay for express delivery!

mmm Blue

All I need now is a CPU and mobo...

Not sure whether to wait an extra month and put 7 on an ssd.

Not including an SSD the upgrade to SB will cost me 80 of new money which is quite reasonable.

10 per Gb for the ram is great value and less than I expect to get for my DDR2's
I just hope the price doesn't rise...
