    Question Ballistix?

    Hey all,

    Well it's the anniversary of my birth once more, and I have a small amount of cash to spend. I think RAM is my bottle neck atm so im thinking about 2 x 512Mb PC4000 Ballistix Tracers, from the website at a nice tidy price so I can run it sync. with my 2.4C which is chugging along happily at 250FSB.
    I just thought it would be wise to run it past you guys to make sure i was making the right decision, as always you lot know best .

    (Note: I do actually prefer the original non-tracer ballistix, but they aren't selling matched pairs in it and it is actually more expensive, go figure.)

    Thanx in advance guys,

    Karl

    I emailed crucial a while back about this and they told me just to buy 2 sticks of ram and it would be fine in dual channel

    your computer is similar to a fridge in that if it cannot keep a beer cold then it sucks
