Umm doubt it...why not just get these
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

They are better than the OCZ and just as good as the Ballistix but cheaper.

Sucks to live in Canada when looking for really good cheap ram I guess, works the other way around.

Lol, it's got its down days. If I really look hard I can usually find the product at a comparative price somewhere but there is no newegg.com which seems to consistantly have very decent prices on most items. It's very much mix and match and find where the sales are. At this point I've bought my case at one place, the PSU at another and now looking at RAM at a third place.

But it's got it's up days! Hockey kicks arse up here...even if we can't get our hands on the cup.
