I'm building a new system based on a Intel core 2 duo 6600 processor. This
processor has a 1066 MHz FSB. Now I want to add 2GB of DDR2 memory, but i'm
a bit confused on what the best configuration might be : DDR2 memory seems
to be available at speeds of 533, 800, 1066 and 1111 MHz, and in single
modules or as matched pairs.
Should I choose a matched pair of 2x533 MHz or 1 module of 1066 MHz ? Will I
notice a performance improvement when choosing 800MHz instead of 533 ? What
about the support for future Intel processors with a higher FSB ?
All comments are welcome :-)

Re: Best memory configuration for Intel core 2 duo 6600
Love the sig. I thought you had to use "kit's of 2" for memory in
these things. So if you want 2 Gig you put in two matched 1 gig
modules. As to speed, I'd use the fastest the motherboard can support
unless I was getting a real deal on the slower stuff. My MB has 4
memory slots, 2 are colored orange and 2 are colored purple. You have
to put matched pairs in matched color slots.
