Default crucial ram upgrade. - 04-13-2009, 05:39 AM

I'm awaiting my mini (2 more days...I'm really excited) I am looking at the crucial site and I see two different sticks of ram that they tell me will work is one faster or better. They are the exact same price and I am just wondering if I will see any better performance out of one over the other.

Part #: CT885015 • DDR2 PC2-5300 • CL=5 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-667 • 1.8V • 256Meg x 64
Part #: CT897995 • DDR2 PC2-6400 • CL=6 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-800 • 1.8V • 256Meg x 64

The Mini is limited to a 533mhz front side bus speed, so in essence, the two will run at exactly the same speed.

I bought the '5300' one, because of that (2GB) I have it running in my Mini, with no problems at all (and in case you wondered, it literally is 30 seconds work to install!)
