Hi guys...

I'm not sure if I'm just being stupid here.. but i'm looking to buy some RAM, i have found the one i want but it appears to be different on two different websites...

the first one i found was

http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Memory/DDR2/DDR2+800+%28PC6400%29/Corsair+2GB+PC2-6400+C4+XMS2+%282x1GB%29+?productId=27958 - Go to Aria.co.uk and its quickcode #27958

which says " . This memory has been verified to operate at 800MHz at the low latencies of 4-4-4-12"

However I looked around a bit and i found the same (or at least so i thought) on here


(ebuyer quickcode 98710)

this looks like the same RAM however a. it is slightly cheaper -and b. it says

" This memory has been verified to operate at 800MHz at the low latencies of 5-5-5-12-T1."

I have two questions here:-

1. are they the same?
2. if they're not which is better - would i be better waiting for the one on Aria to come back into stock?

I know this sounds like a silly question but i'm quite new to this and just want to make sure i get the best RAM i can. any help would be much appreciated.


i have looked at both and the manuactures data sheets and there dosn't seem to be much difference prob just a marketing ploy they say the one with TWIN2X2048-6400 c4 on the end is better for sli gaming ie if you have two graphics cards linked together but to be honest you prob wouldnt notice the difference I would go for the cheaper one though!
