Oh, OCZ RAM. Good for gaming and overclocking it is.

if ur not gonna oc, get value select, if so, get OCZ platinum or Corsair xms. If u want better preformacne, get lower cas latency and tighter timings (aim for 2-2-2-5)

Yeah for about $160 you can buy 2gb of value select ram, which like all the other guys said is great if you don't plan on overclocking.

Check the specs. Names mean nothing.

You didn't say price was a factor.

You can't compair RAM just by name. Whether it is OCZ or Corsair means jack squat if the specs are different.

If one has a spec of 3-4-4-8, and the other 2-3-3-4, your decision is over.

BTW, OC=Over-Clocking RAM. OCZ is the name of a company that sells RAM. At least attempt to spell things correctly so you don't sound like some kind of CompUSA poser. If you don't want people getting upset with you, don't confuse them by asking questions that you didn't even bother to fully write out.
