Default Buying New Ram: OCZ vs Corsair

Hmm I'm trying to decide which new ram sticks to buy and I've gotten it down between OCZ and Corsair but which one to choose...


OCZ Platinum Revision-2 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Dual Channel Memory (2 x 1024MB) and after MIR it comes to 34.97

or

Corsair Dual Channel TWINX 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz E.P.P. Memory (2 x 1024)
and after MIR comes to 34.97

What is a guy to do lol

Any opinions?

I didn't have a lot of luck OCing the plats to be honest. The OCZ SLI's seem to have a lot more headroom in that price range if you can find some. I did pretty well with the Corsairs, OCZ SLI's had a bit tighter timings but not enough that it wasn't just luck of the draw. I tend to like OCZ because of their support, but I hate rebates and won't buy anything with a rebate anymore. I look for non rebate sale prices. I'm getting really old and crabby about crap like that I guess. So between your choices, the Corsair.
