Well i currently have 4x1gb sticks of Corsair DDR2 6400 Ram..
I was wondering since i was about to order 4x1gb sticks of Kingston Hyper X PC2 8500..what i wanna know is "will this ram be as good or better than my current ram"? i will not be overclocking,so all i want is the best Performance ram for my Asus P5B MOBO....

I need advice.
Thanks in advance.

I plan on giving my current ram to my dad if i do order new ram...

If you already have 4gigs of Corsair PC2 6400 ,then save your money because you will not see any performance difference.If you do ,it will be very little ,if any.I just know with my Evga 680i SLI I went from PC2 6400C4 Dominator to PC2 8500C5 Dominator and all I did was waste my money .

Faster ram is useless unless your overclocking. Stick with what you have. :)
