    I had my Sys in my sig running with 2 sets of Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 1066 Dual Channel memory. The first set I received was double sided and the second set was single sided. When I install both sets at 1066 I eventially get crashes. I removed the single sided set and my sys runs stable. I read many bad reviews concerning the later single sided memory. Can somebody please suggest better memory which will run stable on my system?

    Thank You!

    Bro, I don't know what your budget is, but I learned one thing over time. You cannot go wrong with Corsair.

    Check these out

    I've also heard very good things about OCZ RAM

    These are honestly some of the best sticks I've ever owned, along with the older double sided tracers. This is after owning nearly 20 different high performance sets in the last 3 years. Check them out.
