The xms series is a little better than the regular corsair memory because it lets you overclock the system farther if you ever wanted to and the timings are lower.
The corsair value ram isnt cheap, if you read the reviews its a super memory stick. Ill leave that up to you. 2 gb of ram would be better to have and would help in the future as well. About lasting 1-2 years. My pc I have is 8 months old, its fast plays any game but I would like to upgrade within 6 months. I dont know about it lasting over 2 years because thats along time in my book. New games out now keep getting faster and faster and more demanding. The pc would last a Good 1-2 years with 2gb of ram.
You cant keep up with technology.
Get a case at the same place you order everything else, it will save you... Pick whatever case you want... Atx design with sufficient airflow.
DONT get that geil ram, Get 2gb of that corsair valueram and your set or either 2gb of corsair xms series ram.
I never posted the geil ram....
I posted this ram all along.... corsair valueselect
