OCZ is well known for being constantly on the lookout for new ways to improve performance of their enthusiast memories. The 3200 Gold GX XTC are using OCZ's completely reingeneered heatspreaders which feature a pattern of honeycomb holes for improved heat transfer. Being able to run tight latencies of 2-2-2-5 1T is a great way to improve system performance. In our tests we could run at DDR476 with those timings.

Kr4ng .. depends on what you want out of your memory ... the sticks W1zz reviewed have faster timings than the ones you are comparing to ... you need tighter timings for speed go with the GX or more memory for apps go for the 2gb kit ... the GX like voltage to OC higher mhz at the tighter timings ... W1zz reviewed 2gb GX here

is this the gold 2 gb kit better than http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820227210 ? you think i should save up for the gold one or the silver one
What mobo do you have .. again depends on what you rig you have and if it's a Intel or AMD, if you want more memory or speed .... if you want high FSB or tighter timings... does your mobo have high voltage settings for the memory, above 2.85v? are you ocing the mobo?
