Which is better?

Looking at some DDR3, 1600mhz, 2 x 2gb sticks, which would you say is better;

this;

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/146059

or this;

http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=787783

the timings on the OCZ kit are;
7-7-7-24

and on the Corsair kit are;

9-9-9-24

Any thoughts?? I’m thinking the OCZ one’s are the better buy?


#2

anyone? anyone at all?>??? :confused::confused:


#3

Give it time Greg, you only gave it 30 minutes :wink:


#4

lol, i figured it was an easy ‘the former’ or ‘the latter’ kind of question :o:doh:

Oh helloooo arachne, long time no see :wink:


#5

If the 7’s and 9’s are millisecond timings, then less is better. But you know that’s not the whole answer.

Is that system spec in your sig up-to-date?


#7

The memory is for a new mobo/cpu/memory that I’m planning on swapping out my old mobo/cpu/memory for.

The mobo will be a P5Q3 Deluxe/WiFi-AP @n and the cpu will be a Core2Duo E8500.


#8

That OCZ will definitly be a bit faster.

So why are you looking to take the plunge into DDR3?


#9

eh, im still looking, and have decided to stick with DDR2 in the end, I rechecked my budget and for what I need, DDR2 is fine, I was thinking of DDR3 for futureproofing, but that word is pretty lame when it comes to pc building.

Imma go for this instead;

paired with the Asus P5Q Deluxe mobo. Saves around £100 over the DDR3 +ddr3 mobo choice.

That is some good looking RAM and the timing on it is great @4,4,4,12
LOL!!! as for future-proofing that is almost impossible to do in the world
of computers now days. What you buy today will almost undoubtedly be
outdated tomorrow. :iagree: :doh:
