I'm looking for a good 2Gig set of RAM, and everybody's recommending Crucial as a good source for it.
1. I checked out Crucial.com, and for my system, they recommend some brandless 240-pin DIMMs, which I assume is their "Crucial" line, and the Ballistix brand RAM, and some that are "Intel validated." Does the brand really matter with RAM? How good is the Crucial brand RAM?
2. Also for about $80 more, I see that I can upgrade from PC2-4200 to PC2-5300. How much of a speed difference will I experience here? Is it worth the extra money?
3. If I want 2gigs of RAM, it is best to simply get a "2GB(1GBx2)" kit? What if I get two "1GB(512MBx2)" kits? Will there be a difference in speed?
