I was about to buy The OCZ Gold stuff when i noticed that i could get some Geil a lot cheaper (Thanx to XMS from another post):

GeIL 1GB (2x512MB) PC4400 Ultra Platinum @ £176.19 or $339.65 (US)
or
OCZ 1GB (2x512MB) PC4400 Dual Channel Gold @ £264.48 or $509.86 (US)

Which one is best, why is the OCZ £88/$170 more than the Geil, and if the OZC is better, is that reason worth the extra £88/$170?

Many thanks in advance.

Well, i'm ordering the Geil stuff today after reading some good reviews about it.

The only thing that tickled me a bit is that the Geil PC4000 is CAS2.5 and the PC4400 is CAS3....now i bet anything that you could run the PC4000 at CAS3 and get it to run at/beyond PC4400 speeds. Thus saving yourself about £20.

Well... you changed my mind... thanx, you just saved me £88.
I think I'll buy an OCZ ModStream 520W with that.

No Problems. I have read quite a bit about those sticks being pretty good overclockers too.

On another note, you might want to read up on that Modstream...it well sucks (maybe a bit harsh) - but its only got the same Amperage as a 480w Tagan, and the rails fluctuate like a biach. If you've got a few more $$'s go for the 520w Powerstream, it kicks @$$.
