    Sorry, I don't... its in their Friday ad here in Phoenix. Its $20 more than I was planning on spending on ram (normally I just get the Value stuff that kingston has), but if this is a good deal and will help more with video editing and creation, then I'll opt for it instead.

    Edit: Here's a link from their online store, outpost.com: http://shop3.outpost.com/product/3645865

    Kingston HX is quite a bit better than their Value RAM.

    More than $20 worth of better, IMHO.

    Better grab it while you can...and if you run a Pentium 4 or Athlon 64 board that supports dual channel DDR, grab two.

    Most games virtually require a full GB of DDR to keep them out of the virtual RAM, and everything will load a WHOLE lot faster with a gig installed, even without DC DDR capabilities.

    BTW, I paid $189 for the 2x512MB stix of OCZ I am running, and THAT was a good deal!

    Good luck.
     
  5. But will it be compatible with Kingston value RAM? I already have 1 gig of that installed.

    Depends on which ValueRam.

    Kingston's PC2700 and slower, are specifically labelled as "Not for dual channel systems."

    Kingston's PC3200 ValueRam will work fine in dual channel mode with somewhat conservative memory timings.

    Yea, I considered the value ram, but its CAS latency isn't as low as the hyper x, and I need as good as I can afford so I can put this dvd burner that I have to good use along with adobe preimier and my digi video cam.
