Default Need 2GB RAM for around $50 (2x1)

Whats the best deal out there. I see NewEgg has this:

Newegg.com - CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

which is the same brand I currently have 2x512 of right now. At the time I bought this brand OCZ was the sh*t and this out benchmarked them. Would that still hold true today? Seems like everyone likes the Crucial brand, big difference? Looking to buy tonight or tomorrow.

I'll have to agree with everyone else that these would probably be your best bet:
Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Is Fry's just a West Coast store? You can get that same RAM for $30 after mail in rebates (I think it was like $65 before).

Whats the difference between that and the Corsair XMS? I've long forgotten how to look for memory. Looks to me like they're exactly the same.

Brand is a big part of it. Other brands can oc better, but if you dont oc then the ampx is good. Even if you oc some, they're still good. And they use micron chips (single sided).
