I am buying an ECS K7S5A motherboard.

The question I have is what memory should I use.
256mb PC2100 cas 2.5
Micron @ $34.00
Crucial @ $35.99
Corsair @ $56.00
Why is one so much less then the other?

Should I look at cas 2?

I am going to try and increase the fsb of my board but everything else is locked.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks David

Corsair smokes them all, look on the web for benchmarks, you will see for yourself. All I use is Corsair and it rocks! Why do you think it is more expensive?? You get what you pay for!

You can never go wrong with Corsair memory. They may be a little more expensive, but you definitely get what you pay for. They are overclockable, and stable. You may want to pick up some PC150 memory so that the overclocking will actually underclock your memory and in theory make the system more stable.
