    Default Which memory? want to overclock!!!

    Memory Questions:

    I want to purchase 2 GB of memory for a P5Q-E, Q6600 antec 900 rig, with 750tx, TR 120 extreme, 4860 . All this heavily over clocked.

    So far I have only been recommended this by a colleague at work:

    A) ocz reaper Pc8500 - apparently not very overclockable

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/142405

    b) Crucial balistix Pc8500 - don't know much about

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/142405

    {or are these crap - and what's the best alternative} .

    Please note a higher fsb for the P5Q's fsb speed will hopefully be achieved with further bios updates!

    budget is max. of £45


    P.s : (no budget for vista currently, so sticking to XP32 for now, will upgrade ram and OS in about 9 months time.)

    Thanks

    I would say go with the crucial, team xtreme would probably be out of his price range

    Why do you suggest the team range?

    by the way - i may change the cpu oiver time, to the best that this socket can handel, 775, as the price starts to come down.

    So which ram????/
