Default Help on RAM.

Hello guys.
I am building a new computer and I just had a quick question on what is the best memory i could buy. I kno timings of 2-2-2 are the best so DDR2 would be the best.... I am lokking to buy OCZ, Mushkin, Corsair, or Kingston. I dont know yet. I have the Asus A8N-SLi Deluxe Motherboard so I also want it to be compatible with that. I am mostly going to use this computer for games such as Counter_Strike :Source, Battlefield 2, Medal of Honor Pacific Assault, and F.E.A.R. Any other suggestions, please post em'. Thanks guys.

Ddd2 is acutally slower than ddr. I've seen benchmarks... but the best... curcial ballistix or kingston hyperx or whatever it is... ocz makes good ones too. I'd say the best would be crucial's ballistix.

Default Well

In my experience OCZ platinum revision 2 is the best kind of memory. The timings on it are great 2-2-2-5 in a decent system (my friends got a fx 55 and with t1 timings and stock voltage his is actualy 1.5-2-2-4) and currently DDR is better then DDR2 because DDR2 is brand new technology
