Windows Task manager is showing memory speed where CPU-Z is showing memory bandwidth they are different. Looking at the two figures it could be that the speed is the bandwidth x 2. I've tried to do a search on what the difference is but cannot find anything myself but some one may have the answer.

DDR stands for Double Data Rate.

Seems that CPU-Z is reporting the base frequency but the OS is doubling it to give the usable rate.

Go to here and enter the relevant information.

Note that if you are buying 2 modules then go for a matched pair and that if your OS is 32 bit then the maximum usable RAM is 4GB.

If you dont want Crucial memory then other sites offer the same facility such as Corsair and Kingston.
