Can't Decide on what to get

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Right now i have slightly oc'ed my pc, but i want to upgrade my ram because it keeps giving me problems. I have been between crucial, corsair, and ocz. I have had quite a few people tell me that there ocz sticks won't run at the advertised timings at 2.2v, i have also had a few of them tell me they got a dead stick from them, i was already leaning away from them and this pretty much pushed them out of my choices.

So now i am down to crucial and corsair. I plan to oc more when i get my new sticks, still nothing extreme like water cooling, but i plan to get a zalman and see how far i can go on air.

I'm looking at these. Which do you recommend?

Both are good ram but I would go for Crucial because of the price.

Crucial first, G.Skill second, Mushkin third IMO. Well, I don't really rate them that way. I'd be happy to have any of those brands in my rig. I just trust Crucial the most.

i have 2 gigs of the OCZ Gold XTC. they work well and are dirt cheap if you get them from ncix. 42 bucks after the rebate right now. not a bad price at all. but expect to wait 5+ months for the rebate

I'd highly recommend these over either of the two you're looking at. Guaranteed Micron D9GMH's, they will overclock very well:

$43 - Team 2x1GB DDR2 667 3-3-3-8

yeah if they don't give you the right amount call them. they always try to screw you around and not give you the money. they wouldnt send me my rebate because apparently i sent in the wrong upc code. i know i sent in the correct one but i sent it again and then finally got my rebate

whats so great about D9GMH?

also wouldn't a DDR800 stick be faster to start with?
