Hi I want to upgrade my RAM it's PC2 6400 800MHZ and I have no clue which one to get. I want something under $100 I was thinking about G.Skill or Corsair. Is there better RAM that I could get.Thank You.

You don't specifically have to go to crucial to find a RAM, however you have to make sure that whatever you get is compatible with your motherboard, check crucial.com and see if DDR2-800 (PC2-6400) is compatible with your system.

I would go with the Corsair one you selected as it is cheaper (if you get the rebate) and also performs quite good or you could get this Mushkin one as well.

The Corsair has tighter timings but higher voltage (more heat) so it is generally better than the G.SKILL or the Mushkin, however the latter runs at a lower voltage so not a lot of heat is produced.
