Which Corsair memory on THIS NEWEGG LINK would you choose and why. I am looking to buy 1 gig.(TWINX) I have gone with the LLPT before and liked it, but recently blew out a stick somehow.
Please choose just from that link (pages 2-4), thanks.

CORSAIR XMS, Xtra-Low Latency 2-2-2-5, 184-Pin 512MB DDR PC-3200, Model CMX512-3200XL - Retail
I would go for that ^. You don't pay for any silly LEDs to flash around, only visible on that once-a-month time when you open your case. It has a very low latency too which will mean great performance.
Corsair XMS Extreme Memory Speed Series 184 Pin 512MB Registered PC-3200 - Retail. Corsair XMS Extreme Memory Speed Series, Low Latency 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-3700 with Platinum-Silver Heat Spreader.
To make sure its compatible. The second one, for low latency. Price is a big deal, to me, so the first is the one I'd pick.
This one does however LOOK very nice.
Lower Voltage, 1.6, means more power for the rest of your system. @ Only $181.36, its not the most expensive. 5Gig bandwidth.
Its "Cas Latency: 4-4-4-12", looks fairly high though...
Ah, if you want, you can assume this is just to boost my post count...
Monster_user... the XMS2 series is DDR2. It's rather tough to fit it into a DDR slot :D (And now I hope that the OP does indeed want DDR!) And yes, those timings are high. It's a "problem" that plagues DDR2 memories and is the primary reason why I recommend anyone going with a DDR2-based system start with DDR2-667 or higher. DDR2-533 is easily beaten down by quality DDR400 memories (those sticks based on Samsung TCCD and certain Micron chips).
Sorry for the confusion, I also meant to say unbuffered 3200 speed.
I went with Reven's suggestion as it was on my shopping cart as my 1st pick:) I'm not looking for the fastest ram on the market right now, just good sood stuff at a decent price :) $251.00 for a GIG :) Thanks all.
Well now, if I'd known that you were ready to spend /that/ much, I'd have chimed in for a certain offering from OCZ. $270-ish for 2-2-2-5 timings @ DDR400, good to DDR600 on an A64 platform (and a "mere" DDR557 on a P4).

Do'oh... What I'm tired, and those were a LOT of numbers :p its 2:00am over here. I wasn't paying attention.

Been there, done that
