Question Infineon or corsair???

I am really confused, in deciding which ram i should buy and which ram i shouldnt..

This guy is selling 2 kinds of ram.

One is Corsair 1Gb, 2 sticks of XMS512-3200v1.1 (this one was released before the JDEC standard)
Latency: 2.5-3-3-8 @ PC3200

and the other one, 1GB Infineon, 2 sticks 512 mb ram.
Latency: 2-3-2-5 @ PC3200

Well, ofcourse the infineon has better latency speeds, but I am not sure if its a good ram. Cuz, Corsair seems to be the real popular one, and good with ram stuff.

What do u guyz say? Infineon or Corsair. Which one is the best? He is charging, $120 for the corsair, and $130 for the Infineon.

well i wouldn't trust the guy no matter what

the corsair latency sucks, but i haven't heard about infineon having good latencies either, maybe the guy is lying or something (and infineon only makes those black chips, not ram, i think)

Go with Corsair. The latencies are 2-3-3-6 1T (2.5 on AMD) at DDR400.
