I am trying to get the best bang for the buck on memory. I am looking at DDR3 2000 memory from G skill. I see RipJaws for $120 and Trident for $125. Everything looks almost identical. There are even more types of G Skill ram that cost more and almost look identical in everything but price. Is there really a difference in these ram sticks? I am looking at the 2 x 2gb DD3 2000 sticks.
