Hey i have chosen 2 different kinds of ram to choose from. I have picked Corsair XMS Extreme Memory Speed Series 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-3200C2PT - OEM or Geil Value Series 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-3200
-OEM both if im gonna buy im going to get 2 sticks for 1024 of ram. The corsair is $124 a stick and the geil is $84 a stick. In money standards id rather get the geil, but which is better?? If it is the corsair is it worth spend like 80 overall more than the geil. I am only a teen so i wanted to keep it cheap. Please help my last thread got ignored :(

PS I will be gaming and here is specs
A64 3200+
9800 pro
EPoX "EP-8KDA3J" nForce3-250Gb Chipset Motherboard

i just brought this ram 2 days ago from newegg...works great with my system, and its stable, even after overclocking it to 436MHz (over PC3500!!)FSB @ 2.5-6-3-3..1GB of it running in dual mode. when i get a better cpu u should be able to get it up at 455MHz like some others did.

I have some geil value ram running at "1:1" with the "by spd" timings. i was able to get the timings down to 2.5/3/4/7 running only 200 fsb. but any higher FSB and i gotta go back to stock ram timings. So the 2.5/3/3/8 is what im running for 221 FSB. All in all i want more FSB with loose timings. Anyone know if i can get to 250 with some pc 4000?
