Hi,I am looking for a mid- range RAM.I can't choose between Corsair CM2X2048-6400C5 and Kingston HyperX 2GB DDR2 1066 PC2-8500.Both are priced identical in my nearest dealer.My motherboard is Intel DG31 PR and CPU is Core2Duo E7400.RAMs from other manufacturers are not easily available in my region.Please advise.
Both are great brands and great models from each of the brands.
I would pick the Corsair CM2
however for two reasons:1.
The Corsair runs on lower voltage
(1.8v vs. 2.2v)2.
The Kingston is capable of doing higher frequency (1066 Mhz vs. 800 Mhz) but your motherboard's limit is 800Mhz
so the other stick would not give you any substantial advantage.
Note: I am assuming that both of these refer to single 1x2gb sticks. If this is not correct, I would have to re-evaluate.
