System memory plays a big role in the performance of your computer. Too little, and you sit waiting patiently for even the most mundane tasks to complete. It has an effect on computer start up and shut down times, and overall workability of programs. Windows XP and Vista 32 bit recognize up to 4 GB of memory, while the 64 bit variants (XP64 and Vista64) can use up to 128 GB of system memory. With multi core CPU's becoming the norm, installing the most memory you can afford and your system can accommodate, offers the best computing experience.
Crucial's Ballistix line of memory is currently their high performance tier aimed at users wanting to push their systems without sacrificing performance. The Ballistix 240-pin DIMM, DDR2 PC2-6400 memory module 4 GB kits comprised of two 2GB sticks of PC2-6400 (DDR2-800) that are tested and specified to work in unison at the advertised speeds.

With current CPU's from Intel and AMD using an Integrated Memory Controller (IMC) lower latencies equal enhanced system performance. Hi-Tech Legion
