If you HAVE to buy from Ewiz, get this
I've never heard of supertalent though so I'd be skeptical.
If not, get something better from newegg.
With a $30 rebate no less.
Edit: I found that supertalent ram on newegg. apparently it can't overclock at all and struggles to run at all if you mess with the timings.
so if you get the corsair memory, you get it for a few dollars more, it runs faster stock at timings that the supertalent ram can barely hit if you're lucky and you have poor overclocking potential with the No Talent ram.
Screw ewiz man. Just get some good ram from newegg or something. I agree that there is ram that's overpriced and overhyped but the XMS2 DDR2 800 is not.
