    In the current marketplace buying memory for a high performance PC can be one of the most difficult tasks. It wasn’t long ago that everyone (except the hardcore overclockers) could safely purchase PC3200 sticks with tight timings and be assured of great performance. With motherboards on the Intel platform allowing speeds in excess of any memory currently available manufacturers are releasing sticks which vary in their methods of being the “fastest”. Some go with relatively low speeds of 800Mhz and use tight timings. Others go with higher bandwidth 1066 MHz modules and looser timings. Today we are going to take a look at 3 different brands of memory which are all aimed at the enthusiast market, however each has its own unique selling points, which one should you go for?

    You had to do it. I'm looking all over the place for a 2GB DDR2 kit that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, so you had to remind me how cheap those are in the US. :(
    On the bright side, the review shows DDR2-800 is all I need (and probably anybody who's not into heavy o/c business).
