Default Better Memory.

Which in your opinions is the best value gaming memory brand..

Corsair ?

I like Kingston and Corsair. For me it would just break down to the price.

i can't chose between the two but i think kingston has an ultra low latency ram that is less expensive then corsairs low latency times.

I was down to the line between Kingston and Corsair... ended up being Corsair because it was essentially two for one compared to Kingston. However, I don't really believe there is any noticeable difference between these or any brands--so long as the memory works and is stable, which they all should be, you must be fine :P

Has anyone been able to find any benchmarks to compare the different brands and latencies of memory? I personally don't see how a CL of 2.5 makes a huge difference compared to a CL of 3.

Intel E6750...........PSN: ELBATROP
XFX nForce 650i Ultra
Patriot PC2-6400 8GB (4x2GB)
eVGA 9800GT
36GB WD Raptor
120GB SG
Logitech X-530
Samsung SyncMaster 931c
Samsung SyncMaster 750s
Windows 7 Home Premium 64

I've heard a ton of really good things about Corsair. But Kingston's pretty good too.

Just buy both of them, they both are one of the best companies.
