In terms of best value for money nothing beats HyperX. 512MB is nice. 1GB is optimal but in the end it really depends on what you use the PC for.

HAHAHAHAHA did u actually read that review?! for one they put your hyper X DDR4000 agaisn't OCZ DDR3500 and the OCZ almost beat it and its WAY slower rated ram why didn't they use OCZ 4000 or 4200? would have slaughtered the hyper x OCZ IS the best ram and you proved it for me by showing a review where a lower rated ram almost bests the higher rated hyper x. what a goob :)

Seen your benchmarks. HyperX isn't WAY slower. The difference is very small and for the price/benefit ratio HyperX is definitely the way to go especially since indyjones is concerned with expenditure.

Thanks for your replys as you have realised cost is a major factor for me. Hence thinking of downgrading to 512meg from 1 gig. But as i have a athlon xp (barton) with a fsb of 333 it seems a good idea to change the ram from 266mhz. Also having the ram in 2x256 and 1x512 is not handy. So I want to keep the cost right down hopefully at £100 the the HyperX ram for 512 was £120.

OK i have done a little research and three options seem to be...

Kingston HyperX 512MB (2x256MB) DDR PC3200 (KHX3200K2/512) CAS2.0 Dual Channel Kit £128.08

Corsair 512MB DDR XMS3200LLPT TwinX (2x256MB) Platinum CAS2 £138.06

OCZ 512MB (2x256MB) PC3200 Dual Channel Platinum Series DDR CAS2 £140.88

What do people think? if you know of a cheaper uk retailer please shout up too :) also is there much of a performance jump between ddr2700 and 3200 ?? cheers

The performance difference between 2700 and 3200 is much bigger than the difference between the different brands. Most retailers sell the HyperX because of its popularity. OCZ isn't seen around too often - at the end of the day it's your decision :)

All my gamer friends have OCZ cept 2 which have Geil and one of those 2 had the gold dragon sieries which out performed the hyper x.






Good choice with the ram you won't regret your purchase. :D
