Thinking about getting "Premium" Ram: Advice needed

  1. Hi guys,

    Right now I have a gig of pc2100 ddr ram. I have 2 512 chips which are basically OEM models (manufactured by Infineon and and Elixir) I'm toying with the idea of upgrading to pc2700 or pc3200 and going with a premium quality brand like Corsair or Kingston. For those in the know is there really a considerable difference in terms of performance and is it really worth the price and upgrade as compared to an OEM model? I'm more interested in stabilty and reliability and have no plans on overclocking and want to get the best value.

    Many Thanks,


    Here are my system stats BTW:

    Win2k sp3
    Amd 2100xp
    1 gig PC2100 OEM
    Asus A7N8X Deluxe 1001g bios
    Soundstorm Integrated audio
    Quadro 4 750xgl (soon to be replaced by a Radeon 9800 for gaming purposes)
    40 gig HD
    480 watt Antec PSU

    Hey thanks for the reply :) I think I'll probably go with some Crucial memory for the upgrade. I was thinking about Corsair but the price is a little much and it seems like Crucial is a pretty good value of price and reliability.

    It most certainly is.
