Peanya :P and many others will say the OCZ Platinum Rev 2

;) so Im gonna agree with them, I have 1 gig of Geil PC3200 with 2-2-2-5 timings, and it works awesome as well, the OCZ has some enhancements that make it marginally better and aince you're gonna OC why not go for that stuff

also the Crucial Ballistix series

yeah right now crucial has a deal for 1gig of ballistix ram. I ordered my 1gb pc3200 ballistix for $260 total. Thats cheaper than the OCZ or ballistix at newegg.com they are little over $270 there. Go for crucial now!

The Crucial Ballistix is the top for stock speeds and even moderate overclocks (to about PC4000 speeds). The OCZ is the king of overclocking and performance at the top end.

The PQI supposedly uses the same PCB's as the OCZ does. I don't know anything about the company so I can't say anything :wink:

PQI is good RAM, the performance product is supposed to be good (has heatspreaders and all).... Usually branded under PMI...

A lot depends on weather or not your going to overclock the RAM as well or wind it back to keep it within it's specs. eg pc3200 RAM on a system that normally runs at 800Mhz (3200) now do you overclock the RAM when you overclock the CPU? keeping it at a 1:1 ratio? or do you wind the ratio down to say 6:5 to keep it at or under 3200 (800) if your going to reduce the ratio than any RAM will do as it will still be running at or below stock speed.

So the question should be which RAM is best for overclocking the RAM and which motherboards give you the most options to do this. What board has the most DIMM voltage increase for example. Some boards automatically keep the RAM locked at stock (say 3200) regardless of how much you OC the FSB.
