    Hi,

    I am looking to buy some Ram for my computer I have got it down to 6 and was wondering if you could vote and/or give comments on what you think to them.

    I am running:
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P31-DS3L
    CPU: Intel E2220 2.4GHz (Dual Core)
    Graphic Card: Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4870 Toxic 1024MB GDDR5


    DDR2 800MHz

    Corsair Dominator DHX 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 PC2-6400C5 800MHz Dual Channel Kit

    OCZ Titanium XTC 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 PC2-6400C4 800MHz Dual Channel Kit

    Buffalo FireStix Heat 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 PC2-6400C4 800MHz Dual Channel Kit

    DDR2 1066MHz

    Buffalo FireStix Heat 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 PC2-8500C5 1066MHz Dual Channel Kit

    Corsair XMS2 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 PC2-8500C5 1066MHz Dual Channel Kit

  2. I've overclocked my OCZ Gold Edition sticks to 1099mhz from 800mhz and really don't notice any difference in speed, it's very vague, just a little bit snappier for me on desktop, but I have not noticed any performance increases in games or audio applications. But your only going to be paying £5-£10 more for the 1066mhz so it's worth it , but up to you.

    I would peronslly go for the OCZ Titanium XTC if i had a choice out of those 3 on 800mhz, but Dominator's are very good and rated highly, either of them you can't go wrong. If you do go for 1066mhz I would pick up the Corsair XMS2's for sure.
