If you will need PC3200 speed buy the Crucial. Some of the PC2700 Kingston perform very well too. If you only need PC2700 speed for the future, pick the stick with the lowest latencies. Keep in mind though, Crucial usually underrates their latencies. That in mind, pendulum swings to Crucial.

Well, your CPU runs at 333fsb, so if you aren't planning on overclocking you should get PC2700, but if you plan on overclocking get PC3200. Just so long as its name brand RAM it will be fine.

yep you can usually reach 200mhz FSB , 3200+ speed with that cpu.
This CPu was one of the Overclocker choice a while back

About how many fps increase will you see in the videogames, like ut2k4, btw i have a geforce fx 5700 ultra ddr2 ram(128)

I would go with the Crucial module, it will handle faster speeds if you plan on overclocking but if you do not want to overclock go with the PC3200 anyway so you do not have to reinvest when you upgrade.

Now it's a no-brainer. Go with the Crucial. That board runs a 200mhz FSB and any decent XP CPU you put on it (333 mhz) will overclock easily with the stock heatsink. It's like getting a better, faster CPU for free! :smile:

LOL, Crucial makes better RAM than Kingston. And the RAM you're looking at from Crucial is rated at a faster speed. I can't see why you'd be going with Kingston other than hard-headedness.

You want Kingston, fine! Get PC3200 Kingston. Overclock that board to say, 190fsb and play Far Cry again. Notice anything? Faster video, no hangs, and you'll kill both them 'copters and blow-up the Communications Station! It will make a difference! Save the world, be brave! :lol:
