Looking for fast DDR2 RAM - any suggestions?

    Alright guys, I have a system with my rig whereby I upgrade it gradually - the GTX replaced my 8800GT, my Q6600 replaced my 5000+BE, for example.

    So now im looking to replace my RAM - 4GB of Patriot Extreme Vipers that top out around the 1100 mark. Ive looked all over to try and get some axeram, however its damn rare over here and costs a small fortune. Ive also looked for buffalo firestix, to no avail.

    So, if you know of any ram that is either faster than the 1200 mark from stock OR will overclock to that mark, then let me know. Id prefer a 4GB kit, however I will settle for a 2GB kit if its expensive.

    No sites here in UK have Patriot RAM haha. I would go for Corsair Dominator 1066MHz (2x2GB) :)

    Hmmmm....

    Only 2 brands come to mind (Other than Corsair) G Skill and OCZ...

    There are quite a few Gskill kits that can obtain the mark your looking for stabl with low volts. Same for OCZ, the Corsair Doms may be your best bet Kyle.
