hi, i have an asus a7n8x (regular) mobo which is capable of 400 fsb but currently using 333. i am upgrading my processor to amd athlon xp +3200 w/ 400mhz fsb capabilities. i know i need to upgrade my ram to pc3200 in order to make use of this, but am not sure which brand to purchase (geil, corsair, patriot, kingston, etc.). All i want is some good/fast ram out the box with low latency, dual channel and maybe some potential to oc. Any advice?


currently:
Thermaltake Tsunami Dream case w/ 400 watt psu
Asus A7N8x mobo w/ amd athlon 3000 333fsb
xfx geforce 6800 gt 8x agp
1 gig generic pc2700 ram
1x 60 gig maxtor 7200, 1x 120 gig wd 7200

Welcome to TSF:

I highly reccommend Crucial, corsair and OCZ memory / OCZ is probally the best memory made on the market especially their high end over clocker capable memory / all these have a memory configurator which gives you guaranteed memory models to work with your mobo !!

OCZ's memory configurator is hidden under the SUPPORT tab at top of web page


I dont advise you do any over clocking unless its only a 5% bump with a PSU thats that marginal / you will cook soemthing !!

eneramax or antec PSU = 550 watts (these are high quality units)

regards

joe
