I want to replace my OCZ SOE DDR2-800 and i have in mind the Ballistix 1066 (2x1Gb) and the Mushkin 1066 (2x1Gb).I have a P5B Dlx and C2D 6300.What do you think based on personal experience?

well I have always dealt with and used mushkin, they used to anyway use hand picked infi.. chips on their modules.
There service is second to none and they stand behind every dimm they sell.
sp[eakign from usign there high performance lines only though, black label back in the day, now ddr2 high performance.

I just bought my first crucial memory the pc8500 i havent powered uo the system yet or dealt with the company much so I cant really compare them fairly, there well priced compared to the mushkin which made me nervous buying it over mushkin, but the ballistix seem to be very popular with overclockers and so I took a chance.

I have a pair of Ballistix and they're great. Get to the advertised 3-3-3-12 timings for DDR2-667 using lower than the advertised voltage. I could probably push them further but CBF atm. And they look great ;)
