advice on DDR2 please
since I'm quite ignorant about the latest development on the market about DDR2 (amongst many other things) could you give me some advice on which brand would you choose according to theese criteria:
- good price/performance: I'm not necessarily interested in the lowest price, of course if it's good cheap and fast even better ;
- performant enough to allow low/mid overclocking
- 2x1 GB.
Thanx for your wisdom/knowledge/patience

gulp, now I'll have to find a primer on memory technology, when they started with "4-4-4-12" or "CAS5", they left me in the dust...
I'm leaning toward Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC6400 4-4-4-12 2*1GB at 116 euros (in Paris)...

any opinions about Gskill? I only know by reputation OCZ, Crucial, Corsair, Mushkin but on french forums I often see the Gskill brand that seems good (?) and not expensive...

In the past I've used Adata almost exclusively cuz it's nice and cheap and i've never had errors with it, tried a dual channel kit of corsair ram one time and it had errors out of the package with memtest so i sent it back.
In short Gskill is a good brand for the money and nice timings, I'd go with that.
