I have this type of Ram (DDR2 PC5300/4200 (667/533) in my Dual core now and want to upgrade to something faster … I found this
PNY Optima 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model MD4096KD2-667
in Newegg.ca … is it the same thing?


Cheers :cool:

That ram wouldn’t be faster, if you want faster get something like G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 which runs with 4-4-4-12 timmings. If you want the memory to run 1:1 fsb/dram you can set the speed in your bios.

Is in the same price range and as long as the 800 will be used by my Mobo all is well … thanks for the info eric93se :bigsmile:

Hey if you want to overclock your cpu a little and cannot due to a crappy OEM bios, there is a way to overclock your cpu and bring some new life into it if your interested.
This link is for a 800Mhz FSB cpu (like yours) and changes it to a 1066MHz FSB cpu. So it would change your speed from 1.6Ghz to 2.13Ghz and it should be perfectly stable since its considered a small OC for that chip. Link
