2 sticks is better than 4 sticks. That doesn't mean I will go for the Corsair though.

I'd stick with Corsair. That's just a preference though.

I'd also go with corsair, a more renowned brand, Crucial is really renowned for good price RAM, so I'd go for Corsair if you're looking for performance:reliability!

Norway is a very expensive country. Here the Corsair 1 GB RAM costs 149 dollars (x 2 = 298 dollars) and one Crucial BallistiX 512 MB 90 dollars (x 4 = 360 dollars).
So in Norway the Corsair RAM is pretty cheap although in the US or UK it might be expensive.

Companies are just personal preferences. I personaly prefer corsair in the systems I use, but I do not overclock.

BTW: Two sticks of ram > Four sticks of ram.

Definitely go for two sticks of RAM, but look around to see if you can find a better deal.
