DDR2 is still running strong

Thanks to ever increasing clock rates, and lower latencies than DDR3; DDR2 is still going strong. One of your newest choices is the Kingston HyperX 2GB PC2-9200 kit a pair of 1Gb DIMMs. The default clock speed of 1150MHz is strange, but hitting 1200MHz is awfully easy, as you can see at Big Bruin.
"Getting the Kingston HyperX 2GB PC2-9200 DDR2 memory kit up to the stock speed of 1150MHz was tricky only because it
is an odd speed that I couldn't quite dial in with the settings found in the test system's BIOS. But getting into that
general range required minimal effort, and even overclocking to well above 1200MHz was pretty much plug and play."
