Hey, its real simple. I have around $275 to spend on memory. Looking for DDR2 - 1066 that is BEST for gaming purposes. Mostly Counter-Strike, call of duty and other FPS games (Quake, Doom). at least 2gb.

here are my system specs

Mobo - Asus Maximus Formula
HDD - WD Raptor 150GB 10k rpm
Monitor - 22" Samsung 2ms response
Power Supply - Silverstone Zeus ST75ZF 750W
Video Card - Waiting for the 9800's
CPU - Waiting for the 45nm's
OS - I want to stick with XP


Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
 
DDR2 800 doesnt have alot of difference with DDR2 106 and it will OC as good as DDR2 1066

also if u are going to wait for 9800 , i think u have to wait for more than 6 months , because the upcoming GPUs(according to rumors) is 8800GT which is mostly a refresh
