I was just wondering if kingston is good ram and how does it compare performance wise with other brands. I have used it before and never had any problems with it and I'm finally building a nice rig and was considering using kingston ram.
Thanks,
John

As far as I know the top brands in RAM are OCZ, Corsair, Kingston, Munshkin, Ballistix (is that what they're called?) and some other good brands include the cheap but very successful G.Skill and A-data. I think Super Talent also makes good memory modules.

To me it all comes down to warranty which OCZ covers my needs so I'm happy with them.
