well, these are the candidates :


OCZ Platinum EB XTC 2GB Kit (2x1024MB) DDR3 PC3-14400 1800MHz

or

Corsair TWIN3X2048-1800C7DFIN G Dominator DDR3 7-7-7-20 2x1024MB 1800MHz DHX Heat Spreader <-- 30-40$ cheaper


other specs are gonna be:

  2. The CORSAIR one has better timings but the difference between them(the timings) arent much, so i say go for the one which is cheaper as MrsBytch said
  3. This looks like an easy pick to me, buy the Corsair. I've used both Corsair and OCZ and like them both, so I've no bones to pick. Cheaper price and better timings make Corsair the number one, here.
