Hey all,

Well i'm almost finished getting all the parts for my new pc, I just need some ram and a few other things and i'm ready to start building.

My question is should I go and buy some crucial ddr or are there any better options? I've herd corsair is also good but where would I get it from (I live in the UK)?

My mobo (in sig) supports upto PC2700.

Thanks

Here's a section out of my watercooling thread... these are the UK stores, and most of them carry things other than watercooling.
I know the first one sells corsair XMS.

British?

Some watercooling stuff, and even phase-change stuff! 6.0

Looks like these guys specialize in water

Another good selection!

I'm starting to wish these UK sites were in america!

Have they forgotten how to air cool in the old world or something?

crucial, corsair, samsung, and maybe (cough) kingmax.
I happen to love kingmax, given it cost a bit more then most ram and then again it is also the coolest ram you can buy no need to add a heat sink and its so small too

Thanks for all of your replys guys, and thanks Caffinehog- that's a nice selection of links.

I will let you know which ram I decide to get when I put my order in-It will probable be Corsair or Kingmax.

Thanks

Not to sway you but see if you can find a friend who has some Kingmax (almost all new laptops use it but most call it kti - generic) because once you see it, it will blow your mind how small it is and how different it looks
