The Special Ops is basically OCZ Gold with a different paint job (5-5-5-12 timings) while the platinum is better at 4-4-4-15 and they will overclock a little faster too.

What kind of system are you running- If you can take advanatge of faster memory, it might be worth the few extra bucks to look at one of these:

Buffalo PC-2 6400 which will easily run at over DDR2 1000 at stock timings

OCZ Platinum 8500 which is stock 5-5-5-12 1066

I should point out that the good thing about the buffalo memory is that there's no MIR which is probably worth the extra money alone. I'm posting a review of it tommorrow if you are going to be around.

Yeah I hate MIR they always have so many loopholes you have read very, very carefully.
