Best RAM for new system Tags: Memory Last response: March 23, 2007 11:58 PM in Memory Share Marclux March 23, 2007 10:18:40 PM Hello. New system specs are: E6600 or E6420 (when it comes out), Gigabyte DS3, evga Superclocked 8800 GTS. System use is mainly university stuff, some heavy applications now and then and games. I want to get some 2gb 800mhz ddr2 Options are (not US prices): - Corsair Dominator CL4 @ 400$ - OCZ CL3 @ 400$ - OCZ CL4 @ 300$ - Some Kreton\LD CL5 @ 200$ My question is how important CL is to this setup, and what would be the difference in performence. Thank you More about : ram system jamiepotter March 23, 2007 11:58:29 PM The money would be best spent elsewhere. It might be worth it on an AMD system, but for core 2 duo it makes for a truly pathetic increase in real world apps. Read this pithy summary from Anandtech: http://www.anandtech.com/mb/showdoc.aspx?i=2810&p=7 Get the cheapy OCZ, if I were you. It is important that the memory is stable.
