not sure. i see some folks staying away from ocz like the plague but paying that much already for a 4 gig kit is sacrilege lol
hell ive seen 6 gig kits for that much(ok, on sale here or rfd but still)

so.. what should i go for?

_dangtx_ May 29, 2010 10:14 AM

so you need ddr3?

first thing i do is look up fs in here or where you know the sellers.

if nothing shows up, wait for a sale unles you really have to. but seriously, 1333-1600 6 gig kits used. just wait it out. i missed 6 sticks of 1gb 1333 @ 100 bucks lol because the guy didnt ship/was too far lol
