why did you decide on corsair in the first place?

what type of ram do you have now? what brand, what timings. do you have just one 1gb stick? or 2X512.. or what? you can use cpu-z to find the timings.. or even the bios.. or probably somehwere else i can't think of right now.

why did you decide on XMS...unless you're REALLY hardcore with OC'ing and other stuff, you won't notice really any difference in performance between it and ValueRAM whereas you'll save AT LEAST 25% if not more
