My system currently has 1Gb of 667Mhz Corsair ram and I’m looking to upgrade to 2Gb of 800Mhz.
My question is which ram manufacturer is the most reliable?
Looking on NewEgg I think it was, most of the “customer feedback” about Corsair ram was negative, usually something like, “one stick is always dead or fails within a few minutes/hours of installing, and good luck dealing with their customer service for a return”.
I’ve also looked at Crucial, Kingston and this OCZ stuff, saw a really good deal on the 2Gb of OCZ for $169.99 US after a mail in rebate.
This sounds almost too good to be true, though the regular price is $194.99, which is much lower than any of the other brands I mentioned.
It’s like they say, “You buy a $50 800W power supply and of course it’s not going to work as well as the $300 one.”
I just don’t want to wind up with $170 worth of crap if I can avoid it.
