Corsair ValueSelect or Kingston ValueRAM

  1. I plan on buying an ASUS Laptop in the coming days, and the seller offers Kingston 2GB DDR-2 667 SODIMM and Corsair 2GB DDR-2 667 SODIMM, with the Kingstom RAM being $10 more than the Corsair RAM. My question is which RAM should I go with. I plan on using the laptop for gaming, and want RAM that can give me good performance. I appreciate the feedback.

    Neither value ram will work in an ASUS. ASUS publishes lists of all memory that will work at their web site.
    We strongly suggest that you never use any RAM with "Value" in the name. It is slower. It is built to a different standard. It has a higher failure rate. It is often made by another company, than the one on the label. Think of it as a company named VALUE, that is OK, but is slower.

    But if you insist on getting one of those two, you will find the Kingston cheaper at www.zipzoomfly.com with free shipping.
