Added Cosair to the contender list...


Jun 21, 2007
In my earlier post, I stated the following 3 choices from my local store:

$244 OCZ Vista Upgrade Edition 4GB (2 X 2GB) DDR2 800 Dual Channel Kit (5-6-6-15) - OCZ2VU8004GK
$260 OCZ Vista Performance Platinum Edition 4GB (2 X 2 GB) DDR2 800 Dual Channel Kit (5-4-4-18) - OCZ2P8004GK
$215 Patriot 4GB DDR2 800 Eased Latency 4 GB (2 x 2 GB) Dual Channel Kit (5-5-5-12) - PDC24G6400ELK

I was all ready to purchase the 2nd choice based on better timing. I went to the store today and I found another 2 x 2 GB of Corsair at very, very low price:

$100.95 CORSAIR XMS2 4GB(2 x 2GB) DDR2 800 Dual Channel Kit (5-5-5-18) - TWIN2X4096-6400C5DHX

The original price is $135 and there is a $35 rebate. I have a feeling that the store posted a wrong price.

I have no prior experience in Corsair ram. Please give me your opinion. I have already purchased a Q6600-G0 and for main board, I am thinking of Maximus Formula.
