OCZ 2GB (2 x 1GB) PC4000 Dual Channel Gold GX XTC Series EL-DDR CAS3 (OCZ5002048ELGEGXT-K) (MY-060-OC)

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...eries_317.html


Crucial 2GB (2x1GB) DDR PC4000 Ballistix Dual Channel Kit (BL2KIT12864Z503) (MY-066-CR)

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal..._Kits_445.html


Corsair 2GB DDR XMS4400 Pro TwinX (2x1GB) CAS3 (MY-101-CS)

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...r_XMS_310.html

You guys still have ballistix in the UK? Man, they discontinued the stuff here in the US. I would defently go with that. Although I have also heard very good things about the mushkin redline.

There were problems with it dieing. Im not sure if that memory would have that problem or if it was just the tracer version of the ballistix. Another reason is that Crucial is starting to focus more on DDR2. If you are worried about the memory dieing(you can still get a RMA though) then I would go with the mushkin redline.
