Default Mushkin RAM

Hey what do you all think of this RAM. From the articles I've read I think this might be top top quality. Need some other opinions though. So here it is:

mushkin 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) with EPP Profile Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

Mushkin produces some high quality memory. I have some of their PC3200 "Enhanced" memory and it's great. Highly overclockable and very stable. That's a good price for that kit. Nice low latency too.

Mushkin memory is of very high quality. That and Corsair XMS2 is definitely some of the best there is IMO:

the heatsinks on that Mushkin set are kinda flimsy. Push down too hard and it'll move. Makes it hard to secure it in the socket.

Crucial Ballistix Tracers are great RAM. The LED's are a nice touch too.

I have 4GB of that exact RAM and I am happy with it. I don't overclock my RAM though. I also haven't tried to max overclock my CPU either. I play games with my computer in my sig and I max all details and get max frames in UT3

There's no point in spending the money really. Firstly, because the 800MHz kit can run at those speeds when overclocked. And secondly, because you will see zero performance increase because of the limitations of the FSB. So I recommend you stick with 800MHz CAS 4.
