    Here's the link http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820220144 . The price is $235-$50 MIR - $15 rebate from Paypal (sign up here http://paypal.promotionexpert.com/greatshopping/signup/200702/terms.html) + applicable tax. Tomshardware just did a review on pc2-6400 ram and this one OC to 1200+. This is the best bang for the buck ram at the moment. It's only best by Crucial set but the Crucial set cost about $275. So if you are in the market, grab this Patriot kit from rottenegg now before they start raising the price.

    This isnt that great of RAM to tell you the truth.
    Buffalo Firestix are cheaper and OC a lot better.
    Also, for a few bucks more G Skill has a set with timings that blows these away 3-4-3-8 the timings are.

    Not that great of a deal.

    The G skill set is well over $50 more, man. You won't find a better 2gb kit for under $200. The Buffalo kit does not oc better than this one. They are roughly $10 less but they stopped using Micron chip. Patriot still use Micron chip. Check tomshardware review and you will see it.

    Check out hardforums bro.
    The batch that Buffalo themselves are selling are Micron chips.
    And the G Skill I am talking about is this kit which is $200 - 15 = 185.
    Def. worth the extra money.

    But thanks for the offer.

    I figured out which one your are talking about. It's actually about the same price as the Patriot set. The Patriot's SPD is actually set up to 1000 at 5-5-5-15 but I guess they both can reach that speed. I don't think I have the proper cooling to push it up to 1200 Mhz. It's a matter of brand preference and customer service in the end.

    Price update again. It's not $215-$50MIR=$165. Micron or not, still a great price for ddr2 1000. Very tempted to get 4gb of these and return OCZ SLI Cert. 8500. Oh what to do?
