agreed, you're not gonna be able to build a $343 rig that uses DDR3 before March, if you already have DDR2 base your build around that to save some of the cost that can be put towards other parts of your build...

Get the crucial or the kingston. Both are good.

I actually have the 2x2GB valu-RAM and it OCs pretty well for cheap memory. Ive gotten it to ~1800MHz before, but the timings were pretty awful.

Dont buy RAM with a heatspreader because they often dont come off, and you can get much better ones for very cheap.

A DATA memory isnt very good. I put some in my brothers new computer and it runs crazy hot, even with the heatspreaders.

And they don't come off...

I think I'll try to get the valu-RAM. **high density?!** Is PQi good? (the bottom link)

Would the Kingston VALU-RAM be okay? **high density??**
