Memory - Between Crossroads (Help me decide!)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This will be my first build, I have come down to two choices: (Both are PC-8500 1066Mhz 2x2GB RAM)

Cosair Dominator:

or...

G.Skill:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231166

I'll appreciate your opinions and if you have other suggestions of other 2x2GB memory will be warmly welcomed.

I don't have personal experience with either but GSkill is very popular on here

I recommend reading the reviews on newegg also since those are owners of the rams.

Given the G.SKILL are nearly $50 cheaper, I'd go with them. The Corsair is also good, though, if you feel like spending the extra money.

QFT, that's pretty much the bottom line. The G.skill is cheaper, but you don't get a fan and it's not Corsair.
