Is Crucial worth it?

I'm about to get 256mb DDR 2100 RAM from either Crucial or Kingston. The Crucial is about 50% more expensive, but also able to reach 300mhz.

Does this only have an impact if I OC the FSB, or will it give an overall increase in performance?

Isn't Kingston supposed to be reliable as well?

Will I actually get an performance increase going with Crucial ?

So, bottom line is:

As long as I don't OC, they will give me equal performance?

so youre not going to buy pc2100 from crucial but pc2400 (which is 150/300 fsb...) id go for the crucial... youd be able to run it cas 2 and if you get a 150 fsb cpu in the future itll lower upgrade costs... if you can afford it now, get it...

if in doubt blame microsoft...
