Go with Corsair. No ram company can beat the Corsair Value Select's prices.

BTW Airiox, how much was your XMS ram?

ya ddr or sd ram
Your motherboard will be ddr, and get ddr thats clocked at 400mhz each stick or 450mhz.....thats what u want and if u find better get that, GET Corsair XMS, make sure it has a heat spreader....to get that ideal temperature, especially since amds run at higher temps than most processors

Yeah you'll be happy with that. I just ordered 1gb (512x2) 533mhz ddr2 Kingston ram, havent got it yet so i dunno how good it is or not yet. From what i hear, you cant go wrong with Kingston or Corsair as long as its the right type for your mb.

The Value Select series are wayyy worth it for their price. Its cheap, and has good quality. And Kingston is ok. It really depends on which company you like.

Yeah, lets be friendly to each other here... I would hate to see some disscussion over ram turn into an arguement.

EDIT>>> Im sure the others wouldnt like it either.

NO FLAMING!

BTW, get Geil Golden Dragon Ram. The German's know how to make RAM. Here is a link:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...144-609&depa=1

And if you dont care about the price of the RAM, then get the best, link below:
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...146-546&depa=1

Ballistix latency is 2ns across the board! XMS Low Latency can't touch it! Bring on your arguements if you want, you can't fight the 2ns fact here guys, so pls don't try. I like Corsair, but they are cheap because of their clock latency! It is much higher then Geil UltraX and Ballistix!
