    Question Need advice for 4GB (2x2GB) Ram Kits

    I am looking at completing my new build within the next few weeks. However I do not know what 4GB kit to go for.

    I am aware that there are very good 2GB kits e.g. the Crucial Ballistix. I would like to upgrade to 8GB sometime in the distant future 3-5 years time, without having to throw ram away or sell on auction sites.

    I have a budget of between £200-£225. The ram must be at least DDR2 PC2-6400.

    At the present time main system parts look like:

    Motherboard: Asus Blitz Formula SE
    Processor: Q6600 G0
    Processor Fan: Thermalright Ultima-90i
    Graphics: 8800GTS 640MB

    These parts have not been bought yet. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

    depending on the screen resolution you might not need the 640mb version of the GTS. The 320mb is a good preformer on 1680 x 1050 and below.

    This falls in your price range

    Bit cheaper here

    Some stuff here which should be good

    I quite like geil so my recommendation would be this

    EDIT: one more. I think this is supposed to be quite good

    Just a thought - in all likelihood when you come to upgrade RAM in 3-5 years the likelihood is that DDR3 will be the dominant force. This may affect your decision is all, just wanted to put some perspective on things.
