I will soon buying a new computer. I've decided on 4GB of DDR2 RAM, as there is currently no SLI capable motherboard that supports DDR3. Is there any particular brand of RAM that's better than others? I was thinking of nidia SLI RAM...

i've said it before on here, personally i like kingston,but personally i havent really used much else. However in the shop i work in i havent really seen any computers that have a problem with their ram have kingston in them if thats any indicator its a name brand and usually a pretty safe bet

I use Kingston aswell.

I actually Prefer Kingston over numerous other brands of RAM. Kingston seems to be more stable.

My rating would be as follows: 1. OCZ 2. Corsair 3. Crucial 4. G. Skill 5. Kingston

Any of these brands are good, and don't worry about getting SLI rated RAM, the only difference I have ever found is the extra money.

Mushkin as well, if you have the money for it. As long as you stay away from generic ram, you should be ok. I made that mistake and suffered from a "Blue Screen Of Death". I had to take out each stick and test 1 at a time to find the bad stick. That's no fun either. :p I would also recommend Kingston. Good brand, cheap, good quality.

The RAM I was looking at was OCZ nVidia SLI RAM, so I think I'll stick with that, as it was in your list EpicLoad, and it's a brand, so hey... thanks all for the help.

Depends.

Most brands have a cheap RAM and then a better RAM. Just dont buy the cheap stuff. Cheap usually means untested.
