    Default Best manufacturer for quality?

    Hi all,

    Looking to put together a system. Havn't done this since the days of PC-133! Just wondering if anyone can recommend a RAM manufacturer that produces quality hardware? I'n not so interested in flat-out performance than in reliability. Was thinking along the lines of DDR2-1066 dual channel. Any advice appreciated.

    Cheers
    Tim

    The main reputable brands I think there are good are: Corsair, Mushkin, OCZ, Supertalent, Kingston, Crucial, Geil, and Patriot. If you choose any of those companies you should be fine. Although if you choose Kingston, they provide technical support on the forums here at TweakTown.

    Thanks people.

    I'll have to see what sort my local computer parts shop sells. Thanks for the info!

    Oh, and tanka, your PC isn't the worst one here. Mines a 850mhz duron with 192mb ram... hence the need for an upgrade... :)
