The Centon is showing as $89 the Corsair is $79 and the A-Data is $78. Not sure where the $60 came from unless it was a deal that already expired.
The Centon should be OK as it runs at the JDEC standard for DDR2 800, 1.8v and 5-5-5-15 cas. I recommended the Corsair because of the cheaper price. Read the reviews for the Centon though....2 out of 2 failed. The Corsair and the A-Data both have 5 star reviews.

I'm not going by that price, it's $60 on ebay, new and with returns.

It's hard for me to judge since there's only 2 reviews, but anybody know about Centon in general? This ram doesn't seem to be too bad: http://www.compusa.com/applications/SearchTools/item-de..., and technically the one I'm considering should be better, with head spreaders correct?

Well as long as it has a warranty there is no reason to not try it I suppose. In general it is not a brand I would pick. The really bad thing is 4GB of DDR3 1600 is about $90. I got the 4GB of Corsair DDR2-800 in my computer now about 2 years ago when DDR2 was at the sweet spot. I paid $29 from Newegg.

Yep in August 2008 it did. It was $39.99 with a $10 mail in rebate. I just checked my newegg account to be sure.

This stuff right here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

DDR3 prices have come down from $130 to $90 for 4GB DDR3 1600 in the last few months. Hell DDR2 was back up as high as $125 for 4GB for a good while when prices went back up after DDR3 became the new standard.
