As memory prices reach more reasonable levels, 2GB kits are starting to show up more and more on the market. For about the same price as a quality 1GB kit cost a year ago, you can outfit your system with a 2GB kit and be ready to tackle power hungry games such as Battlefield 2 and F.E.A.R.. The problem is, most 2GB kits suffer either from poor overclockability or poor timings, most kits leave you with a choice of 200FSB with tight timings and little to no overclocking head room, or a higher FSB with very loose timings and both little overclocking head room and a poor CAS timing at 200FSB.
Today Legit Reviews takes a look at the latest and greatest from Crucial Technologies, the Ballistix PC4000 2GB kit. While the PC4000 may look like any other modules with its 3-4-4-8 timings, don’t be fooled. Crucial, a division of memory giant Micron, has developed a solid reputation for making high quality and extremely versatile modules that have not only proven quite popular with reviewers, but also among the high end enthusiast crowd.
