Corsair XMS Extreme Memory Speed Series as corsair makes better quality ram. Kingston is at the bottem of the wuality ram list buts it still very good, those sticks would basically have the same performance but the corsair ram is hand picked for overclocking, so is the hyper x series but they dont go threw as many tests.

Ya, Corsair, but to let you know anything of 512mb DDR is really a waste, unless you have alot of programs open at once.

Although Corsair is a good brand, I think the Kingston HyperX is better, with the better timings on the CAS latency. (correct me on this, oh great RAM Experts)

I agree with everyone else, go with the corsair. Kingston ram is not good for overclocking whereas corsair is better.
