Which is gonna be better?



Corsair TwinX 512 MB 3200 Low Latency ( 2 x 256MB PC3200 184 pin MATCHED PAIR DDR LLPT)

OR

Corsair XMS 512Mb DDR 434MHz PC3500 Cas 2 - with Heat Spreader

My mobo is an Abit NF7-s with a Barton 2500 @2204mhz (so far)

Best for overclocking and general day to day use??

Is the dual chanel going to be worth it @ pc3200 2x256's
Or Best to go with pc3500 but only 1 stick

Btw im using these 2 as examples cuz money is a factor!!

Mant thanks

They both are just as good as the other IMO. They both use the same Winbond BH-5 chips. Now, since money is an issue, how about you look into Twinmoss PC3200 with Winbond chips. Just as good as those two Corsair sticks IMO, but a heck of alot cheaper....MemoryX.net sells them.
