Ram choice... GAH I hate the selection and love it at the same time.
Has anyone bought or used the Kingston HyperX PC2-9600? dual or not....
Canada Computers sells it for a pretty nice price.
I figure at that price I should buy 2 set of them and live happy at 2GB of ram.
The PC2-9600's use D9GKX chips, which are really desirable.
I'd get this instead: Canada Computers - Memory > Desktop Memory > DDR2 800 PC2-6400+ : Crucial Ballistix (BL2KIT12864AA804) DDR2 800Mhz CL4-4-4-12 PC2 6400 2GB Kit (1GB x 2) 240-pin .
It's a lot cheaper than buying 4x512mb sticks, but still performs really well.
These Crucial's use the same chips as the PC2-8500 kits (D9GMH), so expect them to perform equally. You can overclock the Ballistix past DDR2-1100 without a problem.
Oh no doubt in my mind Crucial will perform as well. I am just trying to keep all possibilities alive.
BTW... is there any REAL difference between the Crucial Ballistix and the Crucial Ballistix Tracer memory? other then the fancy lights.
Figures eh... Gamer lights aren't much of a highlight either.
(off-topic) Why is it that in most benchmarks that I read, there is never any Kingston Ram compared?
The lights are wicked! Actually, I like them, because I can look at the lights to see if the computer is actually working or not when troubleshooting from poopy overclocks. When the lights move, it means something is at least working!
Thats VERY true... I have very rarely seen benchmarks with Kingston memory. Only time I have seen anything was when you look for them directly.
We need a full review on Kingston.
