Just wondering if corsair value select ram is any good and what is the difference between it and regular corsair ram?
I'm not a big time gamer other than playing tiger woods 08 and sim city 4 on a dailey basis.
Due to being disabled I am on a tight budget so I need to watch the $.
I am running a XP home OS on a old asus a8n32-sli deluxe a-life gaming MB,cpu is just a amd 64, and graphics card is MSI N450gts cyclonne.
Right now I have Corsair xms Ddr 400 Pc 3200 ram and I kow one stick is going bad.
What i would like to do is get 2 or 3 gb (2 1gb sticks and 2 -512)
I was looking at the corsair value but was hoping for some input on it or another reliable but affordable brand before making a purchase.
Thaks for any help or advice any one can give in advance
Thanks for the reply.
I checked prices at newegg but because the typ ram I eed is so old they don't the xms i need there or at tigerdirect Think I'm going to a bit more research and probably go with the XMS I found if I don't find it cheaper.
I did find some used XMS in the past. Never going that route again
FYI, the Value Select is our OEM grade memory and it not as well suited for higher performance MOBOs or OCing. And, the heat spreaders are a nice touch in a system that is running a hot GPU, low case airflow, etc.
That said, at stock, the VS memory is great and will get the job done.
Thanks everyone for all the help.
Yellowbeard I will find out what modules need to be replaced and look into RMA (do I need a receipt).
Think I am going to stick with the XMS modules seiing how they have been good to me(other than the ones I got burnt on when I bought them used,(still have them sealed up in a anti-static bag somewhere also) and never got my money back for..
Thanks again folks.
Can someone glance at my previous post and tell me if the two RAM types I have listed there are the same thig though before I buy them.
