I have had a chance to use all the RAM you list D/L and I have found the HyperX very lacking, corsair are hit and miss.

 

But, as far as the Balistix and OCZ, toss a coin, except, you could get better OCZ than 8-3-3-3.

So how about this? Any good?

the ram i listed is what i have in my computer, it's pc 3200, but ive run it up to 245mhz with 7-3-3-2.5 timings ;) the ballistix ive got wont do much over 210mhz with the same timings, some people have good luck with it, i guess i was one of the ones that didnt..

I wouldnt worrie about the ram...I just seen that you have 1 gig pc3200 now :)

 

 

I say build the rig and put your ram that you have now in there and see how it does..never know it may preform good and you wont have to get new ram....just a thought tho :tup:

yes the ram will run at the slower speed,

 

just one thing, is that case how it came?  if so then why has it got a p4 sticker if its an amd64?

Hehe I didn't actually take a pic of mine, I just used a pic off the web. Mine looks exactly like that except for the P4 sticker is replaced by an AMD one. ;) Good catch. Edited by betterdan

nvidia 6800 ultra o/c and a 73gig raptor and 250gig storage hdd

all water cooled with a Zalman reserator1

 

only problem im having is clockin the cpu for stability

works great at x12 but wont cut it at x10...

this is the first 64 bit pc ive built so im still testin it

Sounds Good DragunLadee! I guess you are tired of going slow! :lol:

Don't blame you! If I could I would go with the fastest and the best also, especially with 64bit applications right around the corner, you will already have a head start.

Intell is lagging!

Here's a old post of mine indicating the difference between a P4 and an Athlon 64, both running on systems with the same hardware. Take a look...

 

oh relly well come hook my desktop up man so it can run like the laptop i just brought

P4 3.4GHz System (Compliments of flewpastu)

Athlon 64 2.8GHz System (Compliments of ManiaK)

 

http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=DF4U9WGG33RSF677

 

Both of these systems have the exact same hardware specs except for CPU. The Athlon 64 system in this example has a CPU speed lower by 600MHz, and more programs running simultaneously. Still, the P4 system doesn't touch it! :)

...hope this helps! :)

I may just do that OneCool. Why spend another $300 if I don't have to. I could use that money for another hdd to set up the raid. :shifty: Been meaning to do that anyway.

Yeah I've been looking at all the pc4000 stuff. I'm having a tough time deciding between the Ballistix, Crucial XMS, Kingston HyperX, and the OCZ.

I'd stay away from the Kingston Hyper X... I'm using 2 512 sticks of the PC4000 and it's truly more trouble than it's worth. I finally found some comfortable settings but it sure did take a LOT of time to do so.

Yep another WD 160 sata....

 

 

Now a big question....what kind of power supply is that 450 in your sig?

Actually it's a diablotek w/led fan...I got it with the diablotek demon II case. I'm thinkin I definitely need to get a new psu tho. What d'ya think?

I believe this is it, only without the second fan or the sata connectors. I had to use adapters.

And yes, another wd 160 sata was just what I was thinkin.
