Stay away from generic rubbish and you should be fine
Sounds like what I had in mind "generic rubbish"

Is there anyway you could buy it for me and ship it to me and then I wire the money in to your account or something coz i have never heard of such a brand in South Africa?

I doubt that will happen

Honestly, any RAM will do, as long as it works. All brands have duds.

It's not like it's going to give you a massive performance increase in games anyway.

Core7, I have 2 suggestion:

1. Economically: Go to your motherboard's manufacturer, have a read on it's memory compatibility list, pick one you like, especially the cheaper ones (that is listed on that compatibility list). The amount is up to you, I see that you're using 32bit RC, so don't go higher than 3GB unless you want to upgrade to 64 later...

2. Performance Oriented: Go with well named manufacturer that's listed in the compatibility list, especially the ones that have LOWER TIMINGS. Unless you overclock, I see no sense of buying these throat slitting priced memory kits. Even if you do have the money, the overall system performance difference/increase in a game is well below 5%.

To increase overall system performance significantly, put more memory. To have more pride, buy those throat slitting priced - low timing - head spreader bling bling-ed - memory kits.

Here is something. My dads old pc still has DDR ram made by Bravo. I have never even heard of this brand, but it ran good. Still, Corsair, Gskill, OCZ, PNY. Best brands of ram.

As long as you go for the Dominators with 5-5-5-15, you'll be fine

Enjoy
