I'm building a new computer with dual-core, using it for gaming... I'm going to need 2 gigs of RAM sooner or later, thought I might as well get it now.
2 gigs of Corsair ValueRAM
is at outpost.com and fry's for 120.00, while newegg.com has 2 gigs ofCorsair XMS
listed for 196. I am not particularly interested in overclocking, and I dont care about insane speed, as long as BF2 and other games dont hiccup as they do currently do now with one gig.
My qustion is this: what is the main difference between ValueRAM and XMS, or regular ram for that matter. I do know that the timings are different, but do timings actually make a difference? And if so, how much do they.
Finally, what do you see as a better deal for a softcore-gamer on a budget.
Thank you for your feedback.
