I'm just curious which RAM should I get. Is there going to be a huge difference between the Corsair Ram and the GeIL Ram? Should I just save a few bucks and go with the GeIL?



I already have an ABIT AT8 Crossfire MOBO.

I'm buying the following componets:

AMD Athlon 3700+ San Diego,
Western Digital 200G HD,
ATI Radeon All-in-Wonder X1800XL Video Card.
Windows XP Home


(all with a 520w PSU)


Oh, one more question, how does this wireless router look? I'm just going to wirelessly connect two computers, an office copmuter (with the specs listed above) for gaming/video, and my wife's computer for Internet Browsing and Messaging.


Thanks in Advance

I personally would go with Corsair. I must admit i've never heard of GeIL but anyway the description of it says it's value RAM *yuck!* that value stuff wouldn't make it anywhere near my PC.

Well I can say that my 1st ram purchase was Geil ram...did not really have any major problems....but once I changed over to kingston things just seem to go smoother for me.

I am now in the process of building a whole new system and this time I am thinking about going with Corsair xms-3500ll pro two 1 gig chips...they seem to get really good reivews


Hope this helps

I think it will help, oh by the way, does anyone know how to control a computer from another computer via a network? I have the TV Tuner on my new build and would like to access/view it from the other computer. Any ideas? Does that router in my first post look good enough?

that router is the standard home network wireless router...and seems to be one of the easiest to configure for home users and works pretty good...

when given the choice...always choose corsair...

you know the answer to the last question already hehehe

yes I do.... I guess I'll go with the Corsair then. I really wanted the blue heat spreaders to match the rest of the hardware, but i gues black will work too. Thanks again dsenette!!!
