Thread: Brand name RAM or not!

    Hi Again,

    Ok how much importance should I put on the RAM. I would like 512 Mb DDR400, but I am wondering if I should make the leap into a major brand name, in this case Corsair (about 135 euros). A non-brand name like TwinMos would only cost me (85 euros).

    Is this worth it or not should I instead place the money in something else?

    Thank for any help!!!

    :)

    if you plan to OC at all, or just want good timinings, then get a decent brand of memory

    but if you are just trying to build a system on a tight budget, then some of the cheaper stuff will suit you fine
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Pretty much anything will work if you're not overclocking, but try to find something with fast timings like 2-2-2-5. I recommend Mushkin Level II, Corsair, Kingston HyperX, they can all do it.

    What kind of system do you want the RAM for FastLane? If you give us some specs, maybe we can help you find a specific module that will really work in that system. : peace2: Mista K6

    WEl, if you can afford it, go OCz PC3500E, but if you need cheap, Good RAM get TwinMos

    Well, unless you're really into overclocking and want to go beyong a 400FSB, I think it'd be a poor decision (no pun intended) to buy expensive RAM. With TwinMos, you should be able to take your FSB from 333 to 400, which will give you a significant performance boost while still keeping you on a tight budget. Just my :2cents: , : peace2: Mista K6
