    I am going to buy new RAM for my pc (the ram I have is some cheap make) I have a GB at the mo.

    I am thinking about getting 2 GB should I buy Crucial Balistiks or go for Corsair xms or is there no difference BTW I am looking at getting PC6400 (800MHz) 240pin SDRAM.

    whats the memory for?

    I use OCZ Platinum in my gaming system
    Geil in my VMware and other workstation systems

    Geil = good bang for buck, good overclocking ability
    OCZ = lifetime warranty

    cant really go wrong with either of the names you have mentioned though

    My view is normaly to leave well alone. Do you actualy have problems with it, or is this just an itch to spend money? :biggrin

    I've been happy with both Corsair and Crucial.

    I'm a Corsair XMS fanboy. Fast and generally very stable when pushed.

    Only get fast RAM if the rest of your system complements it; that is, your system will make good use of the enhanced clock speeds.

    My mob Asus P5NE-SLI will take RAM upto 800MHz but as I'm sure you know DD2 is backwards compatible so I gues anything upto 1066MHz or faster will be OK.

    I personally think that there isn't that much difference between RAM makers as long as you get a named brand and stay away from generic junk. I also wouldn't buy RAM over what your mobo can take as it's a waste of money plus when you upgrade you may well need to upgrade to DDR3 which would make it a waste of paying the extra.
