Default Which RAM to buy now?? Thanks a bunch Newegg....

Seeing as Newegg now hates me, and the RAM in my signiture is no longer carried by them, which RAM would be the best replacement for the now empty slot on my beloved Excel sheet?
Here is what I have found...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227215
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231004
That G.Skill is considerably slower in Latency terms that what was in my signiture.

One thing, price does NOT matter


Thanks for your help

Yan

What is the LA part about? Does Newegg carry them? Can you please give me a link?

Idio... Yes, I do want to buy them from Newegg is possible, because if there is a problem, Newegg is excellent about returning/replacing/changing stuff...

Anyone else??

Thanks,

Yan

Just so you know, I have heard rumours of Samsung discontinuing TCCD chips so this isn't much of a suprise. Also, TCCD goes out of stock in places ridiculously fast so if you want RAM I suggest you buy it now.

G.Skill LAs are seconded by me anyways.

well....how is the Gskill lower timed when the OCZ is what.......42Mhz faster and has a ras precharge of 3? Seems overall the OCZ is faster.

G.Skill LA's are standard PC3200 chips but can hit 275MHz+ pretty easily....however, you might as well go with the OCZ

They are already at a fast as speed with good timings....no doubt if you gave them 3v they could probably run 2.5-3-3-10

Still can't decide, but I am leaning on the OCZ.

???

Thanks Nubius, I trust you more than anyone here, that may be a bad thing though, lol! Only joking...
