I'd probably get neither. I'd take a look at what G.Skill has to offer. Are you looking for a 2GB or 4GB kit?

Side note: pointing toward existing threads is ok, but at least try to answer the question at hand (a quote from that sticky will do, for example).

Thanks.

On that note, ericccclau, I'd look into some Crucial RAM or as Chozart Suggested, G.Skill. I'm currently running some Crucial Ballistix Tracers DDR800 and they have fair overclocking potential. I'm not a fan of their LED's, but I bought them because they have a better chance of good binned ICs over the Ballistix.

G.Skills are also know for their good quality and overclockability. I can't say anything for their DDR2, but my experience with their DDR was phenomenal.

I wish I had some models to throw at you, but if you read that guide in my first post, they point you towards the better modules with good ICs.

Look at Crucial or G.Skill. Corsair is fine but you will get further on those brands. I currently have 2x2GB of Crucial Ballistix Tracers in the mail....

The only issue is that you shouldn't get the single sided Crucial kits (they don't overclock very well at all). The double sided are just fine. As far I know, the DDR2 800 kits are single sided at the moment, and I don't recommend those. The faster kits are still double sided.
