If you play Battlefield2 or Half-Life2 regularly, the chances are good you have at least 1 Gb of DDR in your system, and are still annoyed by the occasional lag. Well, to save you from spending your own money to test the effects of another gig of RAM, Club OC did some tests on a 2GB Gold Edition kit from OCZ, see what effect it had, and the overclock they managed.
"For the past year I've always recommended 1gb of good DDR or DDR2. No more, no less.

One of the biggest tricks to overclocking is to make sure your RAM is happy, while at the same time ensuring the tightest possible timings, and the highest FSB you can hit stably. sgOverclockers took 2 RAM DIMM's, and compared the benefits of trading a looser timing for a higher FSB, and vice versa.
"Ever since the advent of the Samsung TCCD and recently TCC5 modules which have allowed consumers to hit astronomically high FSBs at moderate timings, the question has come back into

This is why AMD is almost being forced to move from their current DDR memory controller to a new DDR2 memory controller perhaps before they'd like to. Memory vendors like Samsung that are responsible for a huge percentage of all available memories are moving closer and closer to majority DDR2 output.
Samsung Electronics announced today that that it is leading the industry in shifting from DDR to DDR2 memory output.

Here is some more competition on the super low latency memory front, this time from Mushkin. They are offering up PC3500 DDR memory at a latency of 2-2-2.
Mushkin's outstanding Redline memory modules have shown that great timings are possible with more voltage, and as we've learned over the years; voltage makes for greater stability with the down side of extra heat. With that said, cooling is of course essential for these modules.

For those of you that might have questioned AMD's move to DDR2 for their next processor, you should know that current reports are showing DDR2 to account for half of all DRAM in production by the end of this year. So we should see DDR and DDR2 memory prices close to equalized or maybe even see DDR2 cheaper by Christmas time.
Samsung Electronics, Elpida and Infineon Technologies saw their DDR2 output account for over 30% of their total DRAM ou
