So witch one is the best? Please tell me witch one of these four is the best for gaming.
I would be more concerend about using any modern GPU with a PSU of only 350watts. If you want your system to perform with a modern GPU you will need a much higher output PSU.

I got a cooler master GX-650 Watt, I took the old one out. I must say the 650 is powerful because the sales man (who I know) said this PSU wil jump start any BMW M3-series.

I think any ram with a 1066 (533mhz x2) clock speed is good stuff, as long as the brand isnt complete and utter shit. PNY, Corsair, G.skill, OCZ, all good brands. I built a budget pc on ddr2 and I just grabbed 800mhz. It works just fine and I don't bottle neck.

Thank you very much for the link. Sometimes the little details people put into their posts, while nothing new to them, turns out to be very interesting to other board members......like me

BTW, I added to your reputation Thorsen

I've had the best luck using GSkill and have recommended it many times with great success. Corsair has it's share of problems, OCZ by far the worst and is very picky about the settings, Patriot would be my second choice for gaming with GSkill number one.

I agree with you there with picky settings, but, at the same time, I have not really had a problem and i have 6GB of DDR3 Reaper-X modules, very good for gaming and i am very happy them.

But, that is my personal opinion.

I would recomend Kingstons Hyper-x as i also had a board with that ram, DDR2 800Mhz, even they were fine for gaming

Sounds like he is confusing Watts with Amps, ann more specifically Cold Cranking Amps (CCA). A stock M3 battery is 640 CCA. 640 Amps at 12.66 volts is 640x12.66= 8102.4 Watts.

No such thing per se...I use Team Xtreme DDR2 without any problems. Previous rig I used OCZ platinum..Rig I am in the process or bolting together is/will be using Gskill triple channel

Stay away from generic rubbish and you should be fine
