Default OCZ/HyperX vs Value Rams

I do not overclock my system/ram/vid card nothing. So is there going to be a performance difference if I buy Kingston HyperX Versus Kingston Value ram?

If your not overclocking, then get the value RAM. Expensive RAM only makes a difference with overclocking.

Ok, I do not overclock my proccesor for sure or my memory, but what if I did want to OC my video card. Would the Hyper X memory have an impact then?

It will have an impact once the video card starts to use system memory.... I've noticed my eVGA 6600GT 128mb uses up some system memory when playing Halo for PC for some reason.... But anyways.... Memory can have an impact, 003 had some bad RAM that caused his video card to artifact all to hell and back and some other issues, even though it passed Memtest and Prime 95.
