My System Specs

Default well any thoughts?

Well ram prices are going up and I lost out on a good deal. So I guess I should buy ASAP and would like to know what you guys think.

Corsair Dual Channel TWINX 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz E.P.P. Memory (2 x 1024) for $109.97

Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB 2X1GB PC2-6400 DDR2-800 CL4-4-4-12 for $124.99

OR

OCZ Gold XTC PC2-6400 2GB 2X1GB DDR2-800 CL5-5-5-12
for
$114.74 (open box) $134.99 regular price

I will probably be buying one of these sets in the next day or two. Any help or suggestions/deals would be very appreciated.

The patriot extreme I heard are good for overclocking but would the extra $20 justify the performance increase?

I'd go for the Patriot, personally. Very good reputation, especially down in the states.

I will probably go with the patriots extremes because a lot of reviews say it is top notch memory. Well NCIX.com here we go again. $55 mail-in rebate and $10 express shipping. $207.11 after taxes and shipping. $152.11 after mail-in rebate.

Well I decided to go with the
OCZ Platinum XTC REV.2 PC2-6400 2GB 2X1GB DDR2-800 CL4-4-4-15
because it would save me $40 and I could spend that $40 on a better video card or something else that would have more impact on system performance. Well now my order is processing so should get it soon and this is only about $113 after MIR and taxes.
