Can't go wrong either way. I have some of the XMS and can get it up to 221 at 6-3-3-2. I bought my 512 stick back in January when it was $160, now it is sooooo cheap for any kind of memory.

Oh, and whats house brand mean?

Just the particular brand of generic crap a certain company builds its PC's with. As far as those two, they are both great DIMMS. I have had wonderful performance with Mushkin DIMMS as well.
