G.SKILL is a good company.


If you really want some reliable stuff get some exspensive Corsair PC2 DDR2 PC1000

I only wish I could afford that, but I am thinking the G.Skill would be the more practical purchase for me. I coudl prolly et away with just dual 512, but why not just go big now so I won't have to upgrade later.
