    OCZ or Kingston?

    Ok, I have the choice of getting either

    Kingston HyperX 1GB (2x512MB) DDR PC3200 (KHX3200K2/1G) CAS2.0 Dual Channel Kit (MY-012-KS)

    or

    OCZ 1GB (2x512MB) PC3200 Dual Channel Platinum Series EL-DDR CAS2

    which one should i go for, don't worry about the price difference?

    I have an Intel P4 Prescott 2.8 System

    Cheers

    What about Corsair? or has that already been discarded as a choice?

    Out of those two i would go for OCZ, as RVF500 says you looked at the corsair option?

    Also, if you can wait a bit as i wouldnt be suprised at a price drop in RAM next month....but if you need it now.

    yeah corsair is certainly still an option, just looking at where the cheapest place is to get it from.

    I may well wait a month or so to see if the prices fall as it is by no means an urgent buy.

    Cheers for all teh advice guys

    I would personally go for corsair or ocz as I have read things about kingstons compatibility problems with a few motherboards.

    I would go with OCZ as well. I ordered Kingston PC3500 from ebuyer and they couldn't do DDR400 in 3 motherboards.
