I gonna get a p-4 @ 2.4Ghz and I would like to know which type of memory would be the best for overclocking ? I'm not goiong to go beyond 3Ghz so what would give me best performace "DDR" or "RDRAM"... I know there are differenct types of DDR, but are the different types of RDRAM ? whats "1066"RDRAM?
1066 RAM is what you want
Its RDRAM rated for 133FSB

And as a p4 gets close to 3GHz, RDRAM really starts paying off.....

The p4 @ 2.4Ghz may not be your Best bet......
Its still the same core, and stepping as the older 2.2 GHz part it is replacing.....
so just keep that in mind when you are getting a new CPU....
hitting 133 FSB with that CPU would bring your clock speed upto 3.2GHz, and that might be a challange.
