    It does not really matter just you may not get the same quality of RAM.

    In the case of DFI if you stick corsair ram in it. it wont work. Also different brands have different levels of ocing. Because they use different heatspreaders and materials. For example Mushkin Redline will oc better than most other ram.

    nicely say'd^^ not only the speed matter but the way they are made too... good example... intel and amd... 2.8 ghz amd pwns any intel up to 6ghz... lol is there any intel at 6 ghz ? i dont think so...

    PCB wich is different for every company matters!

    ^i think youre getting confused with your cpu...

    yes, the newer ones do, but the PC 100/133 SDRAM do not matter. I once stuck a PC100 DELL and Compaq memory into an old dell, and it worked fine.

    The new DDR RAM, it does matter, i forgot to add that in..

    better ram does effect how your computer runs, more expensive ram ( or top brands) are less likely to crash your computer, with some cheaper ram (like i use) is suposed to crash your computer, but i've never had a crash with this new ram in. the ram is ebuyers own btw.

    Actually, Kingston has and still does make the most iffiencent RAM.

    That little Crosshair company has made good RAM also, but Kingston remains ontop for RAM.

    they are NOT the best.
    Mushkin Redline is the best. People in the know with computers now adays stay clear of kingston.
