What Ram to buy???


Got a P5ND2 Nforce 4 SLI Mobo that supports up to DDR2 667. P4 EE 3.73Ghz with 1066FSB.
I know the board only supports up to DDR2 667, but can I get OCZ PC8000 running at 1GHz and just run it at 667 with really low timings? Basically my question is, with money as no object, what RAM should I buy for my setup that is the absolute fastest and best for gaming?

OCZ PC2 5400. It runs 4-2-2-8 timings and will overclock do nearly PC2 6400 speeds with looser timings. I would take these over the pc 8000's

Well, it's too late for you now, but not for others who might stumble upon this thread. Corsair has their CM2X512A-5400UL that runs 675MHz at 3-3-2-8.

Actually it is not too late for me, apparently they are on so far back order that they don't know when they will get it so they canceled my order. So I will look at these two that were newly suggested.
