The Crucial Ballistix is just as good if not better in some cases than the HZ's except their price. That MIR made them a STEAL but i myself don't like MIR that much is all.

G.skill ram if definitively not better then the ram I posted. The ram I posted can hit around 1250Mhz at much lower timings and voltage then G.skills. G.skill is good ram for the price and is highly recommended but don't let that fool you into thinking its the best ram.

BTW the ram I posted is DDR2-1066 if you didn't notice.

Good thing you said that because now I'm a little more relieved .

As would I. All I'm saying is that if G.skill ram continues to increase in price, these might be a better choice at $129.00

A friend of mine in the electronics business told me that DRAM prices fell 705 in the last 8 months, so if that is true, then I would say they will be going up.
