Hey everyone, its just after Christmas and I have some gift money to spend and I want to upgrade my memory from 2 X 256mb corsair value select to 2 x 512 of either corsair value select w/ 2.5-3-3-8 timing or OCZ premier seriers w/ 2.5-3-3-7. The OCZ also comes with copper heat spreaders. The difference in price is about $15 more for the OCZ. The 8 versus the 7 isn't much of a concern for me because I'll probably set it as 11 since I'm running on an nforce chipset.

I am overclocking quite a bit for the main purpose of gaming. I'm running 2500+ mobile on an ABIT NF7-S mobo.

Any opinions?

Really, go with what you want, i probably would stick with the cheaper basically becuase you wont notice any performance difference between them.

as you can see, me and yiffy both have different opinions. In the end it's your decision and you decide whether you have the money or not. I say more RAM is better than not enough RAM, really doesn't matter about the speed. You'd could have a 256MB of 4Ghz RAM. Even though it would be extremely fast when not much RAM is needed, if you start doing editing or playing games the hardrive will slow you down since the RAM will have to constantly be offloading to the hardrive and using the hardrive as RAM. (just as an example)

Corsair has always been good to me.

I just ordered a gig of PC4000 Geil for 212, I know that has nothing to do with your question. If the Geil doesn't work out for me, it will get thrown in the server and then I would get the OCZ Premier.
