Kingston's always have been reliable for all my systems. I run on 8GB RAM of all Kingston as a matter of fact. Flawless...and they have a lifetime warranty.

I've never had experience with Adata, so I couldn't tell. It was just something to help him save cash. I'll take good note of that

I totally recommend Kingston. Never fails, good warranty. Any other brand I tried crapped out on me.

Apparently, there is only one stick, so it's not dual channel. People said that my performance would be better with 2 sticks of 1gb... is that right? is it okay if I just got one 2gb DDR3 1333Ghz VALU-RAM?

Good! Awesome. I'll try to get that. I asked the person if it was one stick or two sticks, and he replied with....

"1 x 2gb stick, so it is one stick of 2gb. Other stick went bad on me. This one was fine through memtest86. I just went and updated my ram to faster ram. The picture was only one i could find of the memory. Sorry for the deception. If you still want it let me know."

I asked him if he could bring it down to $40 buy-it-now. (It was $35 starting bid with no bids, and $45 buy-it-now) I think I'll ask him to bring it down to $35 because it's only one stick. ; )

Why?? I am just wondering... why would it be a lot better?

I will probably get 2GB more as soon as possible...

Maybe even 4GB more!

Dual channel.

What it does is splits usage of RAM between the 2 sticks, effectively doubling speed of operation.

Effectively, itll be more like 2666 MHz vs. 1333
though a tiny bit less than that.
