    For this comp

    Asus Premium, 3700 sandy, 7800GT.

    Would like to overclock to 2.6ghz plus but might also run at stock.

    The PC3200 stuff is listed on the asus premiums approved vendors list, (=attractive with experience of ballistix in RMA at the mo).

    4000 for overclocking 1:1, 3200 for overclocking with a divider.

    CAS2 probably, especially if you will run at stock. Overclocking shouldn't be too much of a problem (use dividers). Personally, I would have said G.Skill ZX though.

    I'm tempted by the G.Skill but after the ballistix gradual decline and rma I am hoping for a nice stable system again. I am a little freaked out by the thought of overclocking on dividers with the pc3200 stuff. Does the asus premium allow this and is it possible it will adversely affect performance?

    Thanks for the replies above.
