    Question C2D Upgrade - Memory

    With the current low price of both C2D and DDR2, got the following in the basket, question is, is the corsair worth the extra or should i just get 4gb of the cheap stuff?



    Thanks

    Well depends if you're going to OC, if so then probably yes pay the extra, if not then go for cheaper stuff.

    One good tip for cheap memory is to buy faster and underclock, what I mean is that many people by expensive because of stablity problems you can get from cheaper memory, but you can often buy faster cheap memory than slower expensive memory for less, and underclocking it will often cure stablity problems.
