    Question RAM and new rig question

    Hi,

    Quick question regarding RAM. Since the search length is restricted to a minimum of 4 characters I couldn't find much info on the forums.

    I'm buying a new system and have £110 (exc V.A.T) to spend on the best RAM it can buy. I want to get 2 sticks of 256MB at 3200. I'll be buying from overclockers.co.uk. They have an excellent selection.

    They have this Kingston RAM but 2*256 3200 is out of stock.

    I have heard OCZ is very good and now have this one in my shopping cart. I have no knowledge of memory performance. Would I better off with any of the others, Adata, Kingston, Corsair?

    For the record this is the system I want to get with it:

    Shuttle Spacewalker XPC SB61G2 Serial ATA Aluminium Barebones System - Intel P4 (FS-018-SH)

    Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz (800FSB) with HT Technology - Retail (CP-024-IN)

    Sapphire ATI Radeon 9600 Pro 128MB DDR TV-Out/DVI - Retail (GX-020-SP)

    LG Flatron L1710B 17" TFT Monitor (MO-003-LG)

    Samsung SM352-B 52x/52x/24x/16x CD-RW/DVD Combo

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    TIA

    Corsair XMS is supposed to be very good but OCZ would definatly be in it's league.

    Adata and Kingston are both good as well. Do you want to run aggressive timings? Is low latency an issue?

    For bog standard clocks and fairly loose timings the Adata and Kingston would probably be fine.

    Not sure if that mobo supports duel channel but dont be fooled by duel channel kits. Say buying two normal Corsair 256mb sticks would do the same job, and if they don't they really shouldn't be charging that much for them!

    I don't know. It'll mainly be for gaming.

    i have corsair 256 XMS3200 and in a shuttle SN45G and it works awesome.. i have heard that shuttles can be kinda picky with the ram they want but i would go with the corsair... just my 2 cents =)

    oh yea.. corsair xms also has cool heat spreaders... if you want cheaper ram kingston value ram is a good choice too.
