with ram prices sky rocketing, i was wondering what kind of ram i needed. i am not looking to achieve world records but stable overclocking. will aventually get watercooling but for just a regular heatsink. do i need high end ram? so many different latencies, can someone give me some info on what is important. i see 2-3-3-6, 2-2-2-5...etc.
so i'll need ddr2 and i guess 800 mhz but for a newbie in overclocking, all the advise will be appreciated.

Exactly why you shouldn't buy memory with more potential than the one youll use. How far do you want to OC?

3.2-3.4 with E6700. it's my gigabyte board that i am worried about. ga-965p-ds3. seems to be picky on ram. when you upgrade bios, it gets better but won't be able to do that if it doesn't take my ram

Corsair has a nice $40 rebate on their DDR2 675 memory right now. Even tough im not completely sure if the different heatspreaders alter their potential. Order from ZZF to get free shipping.
