AFAIK Crucial and Corsair seem to have the best reputation for memory pretty much, but Corsair seems more expensive.

I need to get 2x 512mb DDR PC2100 that are stable - I'm not bothered about o/c. I'm pretty certain that anything above PC2100 will be wasted by my setup (see below), therefore would I just be best going for 2 Crucial 512mb PC2100, rather than 2x Corsair PC2700 (or TWINX PC2700). It seems that Corsair don't do PC2100, only PC2700, is this correct?

Any reason to pay more for Corsair?

To OC at its most, then you better buy PC2700, that's the only reason, if you aren't planning to OC or just OC a little bit, then PC2100 is good

Corsair is worth every penny. It is (and has been for quite some time) arguably the best memory you could buy. They hand-select their chips for performance and reliability. You will not regret going to them. Read through the threads here as well as the articles on Tom's, and I'm sure this will be echoed over and over again.

get the corsair or whatever has the higher PC rating... nothing to do with overclocking, more futureproof & better use of your memory bandwidth...

Trust me I know what I'm doing... ooops, grab the cat...

You could hardly call pc 2700 future proof as currently both intel AND amd seem to be pushing 200mhz fsb processors thus requiring pc3200 ram
