My System

Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P
Intel q9650 @ 3.0GHZ on CM Hyper 212+
EVGA GTX 460 1GB
Sigma Shark 635w PSU
2gb ddr2 800mhz
1TB WD Green 32mb cache
500GB Hitachi 16mb cache
Coolermaster Centurion 590
Acer 22" 1680 x 1050 monitor
Logitech x540 5.1

NB: I want to buy a 1TB Samsung HD103SJ
Also considering SSD at a maximum of $125US

I live in Trinidad and ddr2 ram is getting more and more difficult to buy but I need to upgrade from Kingston 2gb (2x1gb) to 4gb (2x2gb) and i want it before Christmas thus importing is a serious risk as a result I have the following local options

1. OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2RPR10664GK $550TT = $86US

This kit is used but they company are offering me 3 months warranty and facilitation of manufacturer return at my shipping expense for lifetime warranty

2. Kingston Hyper X DDR 800mhz $750TT = $117US
This kit has 1 year warranty

3. Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C5C 4GB XMS2 PC2-6400 800Mhz 240-pin Dual Channel DDR2 Desktop Memory $656TT = $103US

This kit has a 30 day return policy then I have manufacturer warranty I have to organize on my own I believe

4. Patriot DDR2 4GB KIT PC2-6400 800MHZ 5-5-5-12 $707TT = $110US

This kit has a 30 day return policy then I have manufacturer warranty I have to organize on my own I believe


Which is the best option? Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

Corsair is the first & recommended choice. After Corsair, I would go with OCZ modular.

Go with the Corsair one.It has the best timings/voltage ratio(lowest voltage and the second lowest timings between the choices given)
