no such thing as which is better, it's all the same, the only difference is overclockability

don't use corsair or kingston value with the dfi board (corsair value is known to have problems; i broke two HDD and corrupted my OS with kingston value)

i'm currently using geil value select, but the timings sucks ***

kingmax seems good, try googling it and see if people have had problems with them

if you want good, cheap ram, check out the 1 gig dual channel twinmos ram

Yup, I've been telling people this for a while now. TwinMOS has some damn good RAM for $101 for 1gb at newegg. Just use the following search parameters:

Manufacturer: TwinMOS
Size: 2x512
Speed: PC3200

and it'll go straight to it. It's perfect for DFI boards because it requires a decent amount of voltage for them to really shine but they are great.

also read this:

basically tells you hot to spot good overclocking RAM and lists some of the best there is

hold on, i'll check

btw, don't buy generic ram if there's no warranty

also, dfi board is a high-end board and spits out generic ram (don't risk it, i had to learn the hard way)

hmm.....what's $360 in US currency?

Whoa if this exchange rate is right it says $280!?!

That can't be the same TwinMOS RAM we're talking about, I mean no doubt it's the same company but this is technically their 'ValueRAM' we're talking about that's why it's cheap, but this is one of the few valueRAM that's actually GOOD
