Best memory?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This is not particularly asking for help choosing memory but rather what you think is the best memory you can buy, money is no object. I did a quick search and haven't found any recent posts about this or I am just blind.

So post away and tell us why you think it's the best...
