Ram for A new Cpu?

Ok Im upgrading my cpu to an Athlon 3500+ ASus A8V and I would like to know what Ram I should get. I was thinking of taking a risk with PDP systems Patiot pc3200 ram for $180. I want 1Gb of Dual Channel. This is for games So I need some fast Stable stuff.


The problem is I cant get to the companies website it loads up with an error SO i can see what else they offer.

I would also like to know what you guys would reccommend?. Keep in Mind I want to keep the price around $200

  1. It's good stuff. Good value for the money. If overclocking, would spend more and get the <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=20-220-033&depa=0" target="_new">XBL model</A> of PDP; but, it may be a bit too far above your current target of $200.
  2. So basically there XBL series is for overlclocking?. Because I Dont OVerclock. So if performance is the same or close non Overclocked the regular stuff would be fine.

    O and is there a way to get to there website www.pdpsys.com comes with an error when i try to load it.
  3. XBL would be best for overclocked or high-end system. PC3200 2-3-2 model otherwise.
  4. I have the patriot memory and it runs very stable at stock settings. I have the PDC1G3200LLK. If your not OC'ing then I would suggest this, it runs great.
