I'm looking into purchasing PC-2700 and I also want heat sinks added with it, but which company produces the best RAM and what numbers should I look at?

There are many out there on the market that do a good job, It really depends what you want your system to work on.

Can I suggest OCZ as the best on the market except that they are very expensive
Mushkin are very good as are Corsair.

You also need to think about the Latency aspect as having too fast a Latency speed can upset your system and cause crashes.

Try this site to give you an idea http://www.pc-memory-upgrade.co.uk/

I currently run 1GB of Corsair DDR 2700 333FSB which works well for me. As for the heat sinks there are too many out there to list i think its down to preference.

Good luck on finding what you need.

DONT EVER PLACE OCZ OVER CORSAIR:-)

For your needs some corsair pc3200 would be great...lowering the speed to 333 should yeild 5-2-2-2 timings!
support is unbelievable also!

>> another question about ram
Im running a P4 3.0 800fsb in my machine and I use a gig of pc2100. Would it be beneficial for me to upgrade to new ram i can go with pc3200. Would even a 512 of pc3200 be better than a gig of 2100 in my machine?
