I've been buying Crucial's standard modules, and more recently Kingston
Valueram without any problems. I don't overclock, and I pay attention to my
motherboards' Qualified Vendor List. If I was into overclocking, I might pay
more for the faster and fancier memory, but I don't think overclocking is
value for money once one factors in the hassle of researching and sourcing
the right steppings, cost of fancy heatsinks and memory and so on.
