    Corsair Value Select DDR - better or worse?

    I need to get some ram for a NF7-M and was wondering if it was worth considering Corsair's value range...

    Corsair Value Select 256Mb DDR PC2700 (x 2) - £63.46 @ Scan

    vs

    Crucial Standard 256MB DDR PC2700 (x 2) - £54.02 @ Crucial

    If you had to choose, what would you pick?
    Is Corsair's value range better that standard Crucial ram?

    I don't have the cash to buy super top-tier ram, so alternatives in the £50 -> £65 would be welcome also... It'll be running with an Athlon 2400+ for a while and then possibly a 333 FSB cpu later on...

    How about 2x TwinMOS PC3200 £50.52 @ Komplett then you've got more headroom later?

    Be careful with TwinMOS PC3200 and IGP Nforce 2 MB's, theres compatibility probs when using these and 2 x TwinMOS PC3200 in dual channel with IGP.

    With a seperate gfx card it works fine, unfortunately I learnt the hard way.

    just go for the pc3200 its about the same price has pc2700 if you shop around. and like Mulda says you have the headroom for later on when over clock or cpu upgrade, if you can afford to go for 512 *2 = 1 Gig do so now other wise you will end up having to offload the 256 dimm`s sometime in the future.
