Which RAM of These Should I Get?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
My RAM is failing memtest at near stock and I suspect it is limiting my performance. I need a new DDR2 4gb kit (preferably 2 x 2) of 1066 or over.
Of these kits which would be best? I would expect the dominators but their rating was only 4 stars on newegg.

Also, how long do you think it would take to get the rebate back for anyone of these?

Dominators for sure... Just picked up a 2X2GB set myself. Along with the G.Skill kits, they're generally considered some of the best DDR2 to be had these days.

Go for the dominators for sure. They run great and i have no complaints here. I just bought mine a few days ago. seriously, the rebate will probably take a month or two. im not expecting it anytime soon.

I would expect more performance from the ones I posted. The g-skills are good prices but after the rebates from any of the others (if I actually get the rebates back) they are similar/cheaper in price.

Out of those 3 choices, get the corsair dominator.
If you want to get a G.Skill equivalent then look for the PI series 2x2GB PC2-8500 kit.

Except, the Pi 1100s are closer. Those Dominators will out-OC GSkill 1066.
