there used to be some RAM with a CAS latency of 6. Now only GeIL has it (on newegg). Get whatever has the best timings and not by some brand or looks cool.

Corsair Dominator is really great RAM, but also very expensive and not worth the price-difference from something like OCZ Gold for gaming. So for pure gaming, price vs performance, I'll go with the OCZ Gold.

what about this in case you don't trust GeIL?

EDIT: I think I remember you were building an i7-based pc, but if you weren't this dual channel kit has a pretty low voltage.

GSKill is known to be the company with the best support and reliability, However all 4 companies have exceptional products :). I'd personally get some RAM from one of those companies that has low latency :)

No one has suggested Crucial......hmmm weird. IMHO, Crucial is my first pick for RAM. There are very few actual manufacturers of RAM, like PSU's, most are just chips bought from other companies and they put their name on it. One of the best chips to get is the Micron D9. Micron is Crucial. So if Corsair's, or Patriots RAM that are good, have micron chips, I would just assume buy it from the source. And from everything I have seen and experienced Crucial has one of the best, if not the best customer support.

Patriot makes some good ram, bought mine back in january 2x2gb DDR2 800 for 27bucks after rebates(52 up front). They have good timings of 4-4-4-10 and even when OCed still maintain good timings of 4-4-4-12 as I have them running at 440mhz right now.

Been going strong since I bought em and read reviews about ppl easily pushing them to 1066 + speeds with good stability.

It was my first time using Patriot, but I got my rebate quick and ram has been solid. So I'd certainly recommend again.

My Corsair XMS2 800MHz won't go past 867MHz, which is a massive factor in me not linking this RAM since it limits my CPU overclock (situation worsened by my motherboard). Apparently the ballistix 800MHz were the RAM I should have bought into. Anyway, who cares about DDR2 anymore right.
