What would be a fairly economical(and reliable) choice of ram for a roughly 3.0 gigahertz overclock with an E4300 and Gigabyte P965-S3 board? Would like to get 2 gigs but may settle for 1 gig for now. Looking to buy all from Direct Canada . Thanks.

DDR2 667/675 or DDR2 800. There are some good DDR2 667 RAM for less than $200, check reviews for their overclockability.

Any particular brand? And the reason I am going for an e4300 instead of an e6300 is because I thought it overclocks easier with cheaper and lower speed RAM. Thanks... :)

Corsair, G.Skill, Super Talent, and Patriot are a couple of good brands.

I used kingston DDR-2 667 valueram on a E4300 build/overclock with that exact board just last week. Hit 3 Ghz with ease.

Kingston Valueram on newegg

Geez the price went down from last week by $10
