Depends, Geil is good memory too and Corsair Have been slipping my eyes just a little bit. I'd just go with whatever is cheaper, but honestly in terms of price per performance ask anyone about G.Skill and they will tell you G.Skill is amazing for the price usually.

G.Skill is amazing memory. I have a stick that I bought for 99.99 and it overclocks to DDR2-1176 at 5-5-5-15 on 2.15v.

Comon now......588mhz for a 100 stick????? I was completely shocked. That's why I now recommend G.Skill is every one of my builds, it truly is the best bang for performance these days. Like I said ask anyone.
