Exclamation Which 2 GB set is better, Might get tonight!

I currently have 2 GB of Kingston Ram DDR 2 ,1GB is 533 the other GB is 667. Now I have found a guy who will trade me my Ram for Either one of these two sets:2 GB set Patriot PSD2 1G DDR 2 667Mhz, or 2 GB set Transcend JM667QL-1g DDR 667MHZ.?? Basically he will trade my ram and a bit of cash, he is will help me out. My problem is, I can't get my CPU to go above 2.8GHZ because my 533 DDR 2 Stick of Kingston won't go past 710MHZ. So which of these two brands will overclock higher? Do you think either set will hit 800Mhz?? I have to find this out as fast as possible, he wants to trade ASAP. Any one have experience with either of these brands. I realize I will get a bit of a performance increase with having a matched set. But I need to know which set is better. This guy seems to think I won't see speeds above what I am already getting. My Ram right now tops out at around 700-710MHZ, But that is maxed at 2.1 volts. I am searching for answers aswell but some added advice is very valuable regarding this decision. Thanx again

Default if I could I would

I don't have the ram on hand to bench or play with. I have to make the trade first. I am just trying to get some advice on which set would probably overclock higher??:help:I am hoping with one of these sets I could acheive 3.2GHZ on Air. Just the luck of the draw or what?!

I think Patriot is a bit better of a brand than Transcend but either way, don't expect 800MHz out of them. They are only rated at 667MHz.

If you want to be assured 800MHz, just get DDR2-800 RAM.
