Hi everybody.
I'm thinking of buying new RAM and can't decide between Corsair Value Select and Corsair TwinX1024-3200C2? Is the second one worth the extra money?
Is it at all wise to buy DDR memory with DDR2 coming?

Corsair value select will be fine if you don't plan on overclocking.
As far as ddr2 it is already out and unless this is a new build then it will do you no good. In my oppinion the best thing with memory is dual channel but only if you have a mobo that supports it, this by far gives the most performance gains. I don't think you gain much if any performance with ram rated over pc3200/400fsb because all mobo's currently only are capable of 400fsb(that I'm aware of). So untill mobo fsb's increase I would stick with good old pc3200 ddr ram.
