G.Skill is by far the best bang for your buck and they usually are very HQ, especially the PI series.
Shrug, my OCZ PSU lasted 6 years; I just recently had to replace it with a Corsair because I needed it the same day and that's all my BB carried. I'm still rocking some some DDR2 Reapers, though, and they haven't given me problems, either. I also have a Vertex that I bought because it was the best bang for the buck at the time, and it's still doing well
Overall, I think leaving the RAM market is a good choice. There are plenty of RAM companies that make perfectly good RAM and there's not really a lot you can do to set your product apart from the rest, so I don't think people pay for a name when it comes to RAM as much as they do with other components. If I were running OCZ, I'd continue the current path with SSDs, expand the PSU department, and enter into the case market (if they haven't already, and as long as they can avoid slapping giant, idiotic logos all over them).
