That is a $73 difference. Not worth it.

Thread Starter 
it's just that my friend and i are building basicly the same rig, only he is getting the gskill. I'd like to have faster ram then him, so if the dominators are better at oc'ing, then i will spend the extra $10 or so just to rub it in his face.

Boredom, how much experience you have with DDR2?

The Dominator are perhaps one of the best few modules money can buy along with G.Skill HZ and Xtreem.

A little bit of first hand experience, more seeing than actually doing

The IC type used on a certain RAM, for this instance the D9GMH IC on the Corsair C4D, is not the only factor when considering the overclockability (word?) of RAM. The Printed Circuit Board (PCB) used on the RAM is also important when considering overclocking the RAM.

Those Buffalo Firestixs might come with D9GMH (maybe low-binned?) and a cheaper PCB than those used on the G.Skill HZ series or Corsair Dominator Series, thus may not overclock as well.

Only way to find out if they (Buffalo Firestixs) can OC to high frequencies with tight timings, shown by G.Skill HZs and Corsair Dominators, is to read reviews or actually test them out by hand.
