Hi
Im looking to buy a 4GB kit of either the Kingston HyperX DDR2-8500 (KHX8500D2K2/4G) or the Corsair XMS2 DDR2-8500 (TWIN2X4096-8500C5).

The Corsair is $20 more expensive, is it worth it over the Kingston? Please dont suggest other brands as these are the only ones available at my local PC shops.
thanks

I just returned the kingston sticks. they require 2.2v. I bought the corsairs and i am very happy. they run at 2.1v which is the max my board can do. the corsairs are worth the $20 because of stability and performance. however the kingston sticks do have nice heatsinks.
