    I've been looking around a couple of weeks now to find a good price/performance kit.

    Ideally, I'd like to have higher speed mems than DDR 800.

    The Mushkin XP2-8000 (red line) is the cheapest non -6400 4 GB kit I've found so far.
    Here's a small list I'm choosing between, they are all in the same price range:

    Mushkin XP2-8000

    OCZ DDR2-1000 ReaperX

    OCZ PC2-8500 Reaper HPC
    [​IMG]

    G.Skill F2-8800 Pi Series

    Thanks in advance.

    I have these, have had em for a couple of months now...booted up 5-5-5-15, 2.0v, stable as hell...I've read they can hit around 1100 speeds, ymmv. I have no need to go beyond 1000, it lines up perfectly with my CPU/System OC perfectly with the 4:5 strap.

    And you can't really beat the price without a rebate. I highly recommend them! :toast:

    Yeah, I read the review on those here on TPU. They seem pretty good.

    Neither of these kits above are on the QVL for either Pro or Deluxe P5Q. The PI are quite new, and I have yet to see them on a P5Q board.

    Do I have to worry about them not being on the QVL?
