Hello. I am currently acquiring parts to build a gaming PC. However, I don't have all of the parts yet, and I would like to upgrade my current computer for the time being. Just remember that I'm looking for something cheap, but preferably reliable. My motherboard has only 2 slots and can accommodate up to 4 gigs of DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400, or DDR2 PC2-8500 memory
My system currently has 2x1gb Kingston DDR2 PC2-5300. So if anyone can help me find the cheapest 2gb module that I can get to either replace one of my 1gb's to make 3gb, or just to replace both 1gb modules. I will also be getting a low priced graphics card to use in place of the integrated Intel G33/G31 Express Chipset I have now. But I'll just make another post in the correct section for that. You can view that thread here if you would like to help me out with that.

Currently looking at:
Crucial CT25664AC667 Laptop Memory Module - 2GB, PC2-5300, DDR2-667MHz, 200-pin SODIMM, CL5, 1.8V, Non-ECC, Unbuffered Haha that's for laptops oops, nevermind that one...

I would trust Corsair more than Centon out of those two choices.

What about Patriot? Are they any good?

I would also take Corsair over Patriot, but I would take Patriot over Centon if that were the choice.
