>Whats better Corsair or Crucial 2700DDR333 CAS 2 memory? >>I've also been told that Corsair memory is unstable, anyone >found this? >No, Corsair XMS2700 is even recommended by Corsair for PC users with Overclocking/gaming in mind, Crucial on the other hand states that "overclocking will void the warranty" and as tested by many sites the Corsair proves to be very stable, you might want to do a search and read up on it.I have been running mine at 340Mhz and at CAS 2 with no problems.Paul

Hey PaulThanks for the info earlier on the GF3.I have another question for you regarding this DDR ram if you don't mind. :-)I am planning an upgrade to XP1900 or 2000 and figure on a new ASUS 333 mbo. I will have to get new banks of ram as I currently have 768mb of SDRAM 133. How much mb of the new do you think I'll need to see the same performance I had with the 768 ?Also is there really that much differance between the OEM and the brand name stuff like Crucial. Here in Canada there's a big $100 differance in price.SteveCYYZ

Steve,I have an Asus A7V333 and are running Corsair XMS3000 and it.. well R O C K S Corsair is the RAM to buy, lifetime warrenty, quality and the XMS comes with heat spreaders which is another reason to buy it. ;-)
