LMAO

Edit: Yeah sswilson I went back and forth, up and down too, like I said it's not a whole lot but for me there was a difference.
Yeah 2T Sucks... But can you run 1T on DDR2 ? lol I only know a few mobos that actually give you the option...

I would go Redline 4000. Ran 2 gigs in that Ultra D you have for a year. Had a really nice kit:

You can use 1T at DDR2-800 (up to DDR2-850 in some cases) reliably on most kits. Kits that don't overclock at -all- sometime have the problem though. Sometimes you can even get away with running DDR2-667 4 modules at 1T.

In my experience 1T is pretty useless for DDR2. For the amount of speed you have to sacrifice to use 1T I haven’t found a case where it is worth it, esp for async boards. Plus performance gain is very minimal (less than 10 sec 32M 1T vs 2T @ same speed).

I think the latency takes the biggest hit, but that's still low. In my tests I found the bandwidth to decrease about 3%, so it's hardly worth worrying about, unless you have ram that doesn't overclock at all, but does 1T.
