not sure what you mean but $5 for a slightly faster, more reliable drive it is worth it in my opinion
nope.. they are about the same... But I'd say Ballistix is one of the best.. if not the best.. (probably tied with HZ's) it might be second to the Dominators if the hype about them is true

That 1066mhz ballistix is supposed to be pretty bada*s I would want it for the fact that you can push it that much farther.... These TF guys just like to always like to stick to the same thing.
