If you're interested in overclocking and don't want a bottleneck, I'd get some DDR2 800 with low timings. If those are your only options, I'd go with Corsair. | Report abuse Gameunreal September 14, 2008 1:36:14 PM thanks for your reply. I have a q9550 overclocked to 3.6. I was going to go for Corsair but a friend pointed out the Team xtreem memory which is quite a bit cheaper. HAvign never heard of the brand i thought i would ask. Oh and I have a P5qPro mb | Report abuse br3nd064 September 14, 2008 1:48:22 PM I would still go with some DDR2 800 with low timings. You'll be bottle necking the q9550 unless you lower the frequency on the ram.
