Ok, i have roughy $120 bucks to spend on new RAM.. i have narrowed it down...

im thinkin of getting two sticks of this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820146846

its cheaper than getting one with 2 sticks in one package....

I have heard that OCZ is good memory, is it as good at Kingston or Corsair???

I have herd that their products are very good. Not a bad price fo ram and its good. Get it unless you got $230 for some relly good stuff.

I don't think they are quite as good as quality Kingston, or Corsair ram. They are definately better than most of the Kingston Value stuff.

Don't quote me on that though. C38368 is the expert on OCZ.

OCZ is a quality brand and is expensive but so is the quality kingston/corsair stuff. I would not so much look for brand as warranty, frequencys, model ect if you are just looking between those 3 brands.

do you think if i got this, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820144112 it would run better than the ones mentioned above.....for the price of this 512 stick ofHyper X i can get a gig of the OCZ...

will the better stick of 512 run faster than the 1 gig of the other??

EDIT:

also i found this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820146896

this is dual channel, my mobo doesnt use dual channel, can i still use this and will that affect performance at all???

Yes C3 seems to swear by the stuff so its safe to assume its good. It really depends what type of system you plan to use it with, Geil seems to be better for P4s, Ballistix for Athlon64s and OCZ is pretty all round awsome. But Corsair is kind of pricey for what you actually get and i dont think its all that fantastic. Kingston 'Hardcore' is supposed to be alright but not quite up to OCZ standards.

As good as Kingston or Corsair? No; better. But I might be a little biased ;) Suede-y mentioned warranties. OCZ carries a lifetime warrany that works rather like thus: if it stops working and everything is still intact (the sticker/heatspreaders), they'll replace it.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.but will my mobo not having dual channel support make the ram not work?

it will work, it just won't be running dual channel.
