    I dont know what the best is, but my Crucial 256mb DDR ECC ram runs perfectly @ 150mhz.

    Crucial should have no trouble running FSB>=150 with latency set at 2-2-2. For another $30 you could also get Corsair's PC2400 memory, although I don't personally believe it's worth the premium versus Crucial.

    Get the Corsair XMS2400. Even though it costs more it gives out better performance and i've seen it constantly hit 160 and above at CAS2, 1T.
    The only way to break Intel is to buy AMD

    how about 162Mhz @ CAS2?
    maybe you in particular wont get that high with a CAS latecny of 2, but corsair gaurnatees it to get to 150Mhz at CAS2.
    it is great stuff for a tad more $$.
    do a search on pricewatch: 'pc2400 256mb', youll be surprised.

    thx for the links...

    the prices aren't that bad...
    about 90 bucks CA for a 256 pc2100 at 2.5
    now compare that to the only store where i live that sells DDR ram... 250 bucks CA for a samsung pc2100 at 2.5 .....

    thinken of getting a new PS aswell...
    I got the factory 300w PS that came with my full tower Antec case....

    I tried both the Corsair and the Crucial and definately the Corsair is better if you want stability and performance, but at a somewhat greater cost.
