Default Re: Best gaming Memory?

I'm quite partial to Corsair and Patriot, but have good luck with pretty much all the major brands. I've had OCZ, Mushkin, Corsair, Patriot, Crucial, Kingston, G.Skill and not had any complaints about any of them. Some have been easier then others to hit advertised speed and/or timings, but overall, my favorite is usually Corsair.

Truth be told, there really isn't a "best gaming ram". If you can find any difference between two different brands running same speed and same timings, it would be so miniscule as to be within margin of error. There's just "trust worthy" ram and "generic crap". Pick a good brand with good reviews and you generally won't go wrong. It's not like picking a CPU brand.
