    From buy.com guys
    http://www.buy.com/prod/crucial-2gb...dr2-800-pc2-6400-non/q/loc/101/202541818.html

    Also, try using the google checkout coupon that is available to get $10 off.

    This is Micron D9 chips in these as crucial makes their own Micron chips (unlike most companies)

    Also, please note that many people use RAM list, however, this list is not kept up to date so please do not just rely on it to give accurate info.

    These sticks use Micron D9s so yes they will OC well.
    I dont have them (I have Firestix), but I have seen them do 3-4-3-9 at DDR2-800, 4-4-4-12 at DDR2-1066.

    Updated price: Now there's a $40 MIR + $10 Google Checkout + $5 Pricegrabber review = $85. Sweet. I got 4GB to replace crappy Patriot ELK.

    Dont forget that the rebate can only apply to one set.

    Most people don't need 4GB so it's not a problem. I just used my girlfriend's home as the second address so I am ok.

    RAM prices have fallen pretty bad.
    I know there is a Corsair XMS set (which uses Epilida chips - not that great of OCers) for $65 for 2GB)

    From what I have heard they arent much different than the other sticks.
    I believe there are only 2 other differences.
    1. These have lights on them
    2. These come with better Micron D9 chips

    Thats about it.
