Default Memory Brands

I was wondering if someone could tell me what brands I should consider looking into buying when shopping for RAM.

Kingston or Corsair are the best. Stay away from PNY as well as generic RAM.

I like Mushkin & Corsair. I wouldn't put Kingston in the same class as Corsair. Just my 2 cents dude.

I've never used OCZ so I can't say. If you've had positive experiences with OCZ Ram add it to the list here. Maybe on my next box I can pick some up if ya recommend it.

Yeah OCZ is pretty good. They cater to overclockers too.

I hear the 1GB kit (512x2) of TwinMos ram is very good. I've seen nubius recommend in numerous threads. It is only $99.95 and has very good reviews on newegg with people constantly overlcocking it from 240-270 fsb. I sure plan on getting it .
