Are you sure you didn't see PC3000 Cl2 vs PC3200 Cl2.5? They cost about the same, and I went with PC3000 Cl2 over PC3200 Cl2.5. I figured that the PC3200 could run at 366MHz with the most aggresive timings, and that the PC3000 could run at 400MHz with more relaxed timings. :beer:

Oh, I doubt they would stop selling PC3000, since right now the fastest official speed is PC2700...

alright i checked again, 512mb pc3200 cas2.5 is $178 and cas2 is $195 . You are right that pc3000 cas2 is good enough, but why not get pc3200 if it costs the same??? this is seriously encouraging me to unlock my chippy...
