I like my crucial better but thats just me. There are alot of HZ fanboys around here though so everyone will tell you HZ even though they have not tried both.

They are pretty much the same really both use pretty good d9gmh chips so either way you cant go wrong

Well the HZ are good ram its just people seem to think they are the best thing around when that simpluy is not true. The only thing that use to be in HZ's favor was the price since they were one of the first to get some really good price drops. However nowadays you can get the ballistics 8500 for about the same price which is a far better deal.

I guess its all about the fsb and wether or not your gonna be running 1:1 or not. I mean if your gonna be running 1:1 with a 475fsb the supertalent are a better deal but oh well.

There are jsut so many good ram out there its hard to choose any more.

The crucial also has a $45 rebate so I think I'm just going to get 2 gigs for now and when I get that rebate back I'll buy another 2 gigs.

yea... I knew all along that the HZ's main advantage was the price...

and, not knowing what the differences really are, I can guess that if there are any it is usually worth the extra $20 when you are OC'ing high and need stability at all cost...
