Hi,

Had some Corsair XMS Dual Channel basic stuff (1GB) that was DOA. Needs good suggestions for replacements...

Should I consider the DOA thing a fluke and just get the same stuff? I'm kinda gunshy now...

Requirements:

Not a gaming rig...Think business setting, Powerpoint, multitasking, etc.

Speed would be cool, but has to be DEAD reliable and stable.

1 GB is fine in a Dual Channel setup

AMD Socket 939 3500+ Prescott core (E4 stepping)

I'm surprised the XMS stuff arrived dead, but at least I can replace it easily...

Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

It's your money, but for what you are doing with this machine, I don't think you need to spend that kind of money. If you desire stable and reliable, I think http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1682... would serve you well. We use Wintec memory in all of our systems (either AMPO or AMPX) and have never had a failure or any sort of memory related problems. Too bad Newegg doesn't have the AMPX. Hard to find better for the money, or even for more as far as I'm concerned. If you want more upscale, try

Give Corsair another chance. I had some memory go bad a long time ago... they very quickly replaced it and I still have it to this day (see my rig website in my profile for what type of Corsair RAM I have). It works beautifully.

The last memory Corsair gave me was TOO good. They rated it for 533 data rate but I got 866 out of it! Something odd about that...
