    Need help weighing pros and cons of these two RAM choices

    I'm torn between two different ram choices for my computer.

    I have either 2 x 2gb Corsair Dominator pc8500 or 4 x 1gb OCZ Reaper heatpipe pc9200. Please offer opinions.

    With corsair you get option of going to 8gb in the future. Ocz being faster but outside of synthetic benchmarks you probably won't see difference between pc8500 and pc9200. Some boards don't like certain memories in 4 slot config.

    Ok, Thanks. What do you think of the Dominator series?

    I do own them but I am not impressed but should I. They don't really OC well, my set won't go over 550 without erroring in memtest(only tried voltage upto 2.2v). So, I am running it pretty much stock 535 5-5-4-14, 2t, 2.0V (rated stock is 533 5-5-5-15 2.1v). Maybe it's a mobo or some setting that limits them but I am happy with what I got and won't waste my time to find out if they can do more or not.
