    Which DDR2 Memory to buy??

    Hi, I would appreciate some help in deciding which DDR2 memory to upgrade to. I have a budget of around £225. There are a couple 2Gb dual channel kits ive researched already.

    Corsair DDR2-6400 2Gb (2X1Gb) PRO Series 4-4-4-12

    Corsair DDR2-6400 2Gb (2X1Gb) XPERT 4-4-4-12

    Corsair DDR2-6400 2Gb (2X1Gb) TwinX XMS2 4-4-4-12

    Mushkin DDR2 XP2-6400 2Gb (2X1Gb) eXtreme Performance 4-4-3-10

    OCZ® DDR2 PC2-7200 2Gb (2X1Gb) SLI EPP Platinum Edition 4-4-3-15

    Or if anyone has any other suggestions then im happy to hear them.

    IF, and ONLY if, you're using an Intel CPU with an Intel chipset (and not a Gigabyte board):
    G.Skill ZX

    those corsair kits will all have the same chips so you can just get the cheapest if you want one

    the standard normal latency XMS2 ram will have a mix of decent chips but the top of the range stuff should be identical
