Well from what iv heard value ram is value ram... But isnt Geil supposed to be an awsome brand? Since your just getting value ram you must not plan on overclocking much so I think either choice would be fine, just dont some no-name brand.

That ram works well in a friends pc that I built for him. I dont think there is anything wrong with it. If you want to oc, spend more on ram, but if you arent its not worth the money.
