Gotta go wit da G-Skillz... reliable, cost-effective, and they almost always give you a cool sticker for your case.

Ihave had a really good record with OCZ ram, am only running corsair ATM because of the color scheme...

My 12gb of OCZ 1600mhz ram had no problems hitting their rated speeds, but this corsair, even with only 6gb, fights every step of the way to hit rated speeds.

I think two would be a decent idea, but then again you would get less of an idea perhaps of true favorites and more general synopsis. Although you should get similar results.

Besides, I would not even know how to change or add that or even if I could at this point.

I've bought OCZ for my last 4 builds. No problems whatsoever. Just need to do research on specific models before buying.

I voted Corsair in the poll, my dominator GT v 2.1s have been good to me, although for 1/2 the price of my GTs this Super Talent chrome kit is pretty nice so far.

G.Skill: decent overclocking in general, low cost, amazing value.

I see a lot of GSkill mentions more than anything, but Corsair has more votes. Kind of funny. I have owned both.

Higher end corsair memory is good, although if I was looking to save money g-skill or mushkin seems to get more bang for the buck than the cheaper corsair kits.
Love my dominator GTs, but hated my dominator c8 kit (runs rated specs fine, but crappy overclockers).

For me GSkill is reliable, has the best cost to performance ratio I have seen, usually cheaper than equivalent offerings, and they have decent customer service. Of course they have also been able to overclock decently well.

I have heard some good things about other brands though including Mushkin.
this thread is irrelivent.
you should choose your memory based on the IC's used not the name.

Meh, i've learned over time that ram from all companies will use the same chips here and there. So, it's really all about what IC's are for the specific ram not the brand name.

EDIT: Redhat beat me to it.
