Default Mushkin or G.Skill?

I use my system mainly for gaming so want the best possible ram. I'm torn between these 2! Read good reviews about both, and dunno what one to choose!


Mushkin 2GB DDR HP3200 High Performance Dual Channel Kit (2x1GB) CAS2


G.Skill 2GB DDR ZX PC3200 (2x1GB) CAS2 Dual Channel Kit

Thank you very much!

Well, the mushkin is guaranteed to run at 250MHz and at pretty good timings for 2gb too.

The G.Skill will no doubt probably OC, but of course with OC'ing it's always a gamble so ya never know if you might go way past 250 or not even close to it.

Both companies are really good IMO so I'd say it depends on if you want guaranteed 250MHz and I'd bet the mushkin might want to go up a little past that if you loosened timings.

I'd say Mushkin, purely because you are really getting a solid 250mhz!

I think you guys are looking at the wrong set..i`m going for the HP3200 which is PC3200, so are you suggesting overclock or do you think i mean the PC4000? I would go with the PC4000, but not sure - heard a lot of stuff about Asus A8N-SLi and PC4000 incompatibilty..Would these
run at DDR500 on my asus a8n-sli? Cheers.

seem`s like i`ll have to go with the g.skill as the mushkin is out of stock, and the supplier cannot tell me when they`ll be getting some more

It just annoys, more than worries me...BUUUT, the G.Skill ZX is said to be part of their `Value series`, whereas the Mushkin is `High Performance` I know the G.Skill has great timings etc..but it`s the sales pitch
