  1. My grandfather asked me what i want for this holiday, and i was wondering what the best RAM brand out there is. I dont not care about the price, just as long as it is 1GB DDR. Thanks

    What will you be doing with the ram? Any plans of overclocking or anything like that?

    Looks like Tarkus and howard covered the RAM brands that I would recommend. (Crucial, Kingston and Mushkin ram).

    Any good quality, branded RAM will likely be fine. Just make sure that you get the same type as is in your system at the moment, if possible try to get the same brand. I usually buy crucial RAM, never had any complaints, in my desktop systems, servers or laptop, all is fine.
