G.Skill is.. eh not great, some of their products aren't very reliable, but they definitely aren't the worst brand..

i like corsair. they are having problems with the 680i chipsets (most particularly the dominator series, the others are ok). However, never before have i seen a company call to see if the replacements they sent worked. I'm sure some of it had to do with the fact that it was four sets (8 stick total) being sent. Unknownly the motherboards would like them but they worked in other systems. Either way, good Customer support FTW.

G.Skill is one of my top brands. So is Team Group and Cell Shock. Corsair and OCZ are iffy. They constantly change chips on their modules so the consumer has no idea what chips they use.

I like kingston. Though I voted corsair since kingston wasn't in the poll.

hmmm okay, so their products are good, i know that, but have you heard about their PC4000 Ballistix (2x1GB) sets dying after a couple months? I would rather be safe with Samsung UCCC for 2x1GB DDR sticks.

I think corsair is the best (though I couldn't afford it). I also like g skill, patriot (have to look for good stuff, though), PQI, and OCZ are pretty good. (and are really the only brands I would ever buy.)
