    Mushkin make *** performance ram. do u have any more info on the two such as timings. As £6 isnt really a lot of difference my choice would go down to timings. But both are very reliable manufacturers

    im star gazing ( ***) coudl someone clarify ?, i think the forums object to using hip cat language lol.

    i was concerned why my mushkin was soo cheap, but... i think theyre just pricing it really low to kill the competition.
    what do you use your maching for ?

    i posted in your last thread why i think it's so cheap. those are crap timings for a 1gb kit. not really an issue for doing coursework. and mushkin are a reputable brand so go for it. :)

    it'll hardly make a difference to games. gaming is all about cpu & gpu power. ram timings have very little to do with it at all. :)

    performance ram is all about willy waving and benchmark scores. saying that i've just bought some decent ram to replace my geil value.... :D

    Go for GeIL value over that stuff IMO. Better timings make more of a difference on A64.

    Hmm, but he did ask for Value and out of the value range, GeIL is the best. Yes, Mushkin are one of the best performance manufacturers out there but still, that's nigh on £40 more than value.
