HELP!! Having a lot of trouble choosing memory

Hi,

With the after-Christmas sales,there are quite a few memory options and I have no idea which one to choose and which one is the most worthwhile.

I'm choosing between Corsair and OCZ ram because of their reputation as good manufacturers. I am NOT overclocking, and I am looking for stability first and then value. I will be running Vista 64bit and will need ddr2-800. I am not sure which is better, 2x2gb or 4x1gb for stability at stock speeds.

Here are the choices and the deals that I am getting

OCZ Platinum XTC Rev.2 DDR2-800 2x1gb 4-4-4-15. = $31 x 2 = $62
OCZ Platinum XTC DDR2-800 2x2gb 5-4-4-15 = $90
Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X4096-6400C5 ddr2-800 2x2gb 5-5-5-18 = $130.

Any help would be great thanks.

  1. Get the 2x2GB kit of XTC if you want to add more later, otherwise go with the 4x1GB arrangement.
  2. Stay away from OCZ, as most of what they sell is factory-sanctioned overclock stuff. For more info, see this post: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/200599-30-memory-nooob-aarrggghh-timings#t1249881
    I agree that 2x2GB is better for future expansion.
