where do you live? if anywhere in us and maybe canada I'm sure you can buy from newegg.com perhaps the best online reseller they have corsair. anyways, if you can't get corsair get samsung they are way better than kingston which is crap

read his location, it says he's from Malta, which explains why he might not have the nice selection we have over here, eh?

i agree, if you can't get cosair then the samsung is the next best bet, i've seen some people with decent OC's on it... how much does this sorta thing run you over there?

I vote Kingston, some of their 3200 has winbond -5 chips.
If you are buying in person then you can pick them out.
If you have twinmos 3200 where you are they also have some with winbond -5 chips.

Thab Sansung it is, cause I would have to order the chips and I wouldn't be sure what I would recieve. The stick of PC3200 Samsung costs $175, is it expensive compared to there?

Anyway thanks for your help, I am going to order today ;)
