They have a pretty good reputation and it comes with a Lifetime Warranty.

I've been using Geil for about 5 years on more than one machine and never had a problem. Overclocks nicely too.
#5

Have built many systems, primarily gaming systems, and never had a problem with Geil. Lifetime warranty as mentioned above.
#9
yep one of the better brands of memory kncing about, not as well known as corsair, but one the gamers go for over corsair
#10
I'm no expert but I read somewhere recently that if you have 32 bit version of Windows then it won't use any more than 3gb RAM so if that is true worth checking which version you have before spending the money.
#11
I have 4GB of it, it's amazing and looks really cool too! Just wish I could figure out how to overclock it, lol. The heatsinks have a red LED or something in them, which makes them look cool.
#12
Decent brand, brought a different set from OCUK a few months ago. Never had any problems, also their support team responded quickly when I asked them for product advice.
#13
not the best for overclocking, but better than most..

Not only that but theres not any applications (maybe photoshop aside) that need any more RAM then 3-4gb at present.

You need a 64bit OS to be able to use more than about 3.5GB of system memory, it also depends on how much video memory you have though as the operating system has to address this too. Games can swallow up more than 3GB total, especially if you are using vista. Vista can easily idle at about a gig, many 1.5GB because of background apps and such. 4GB or more is ideal for the gamers out there on 64 bit operating systems, vista and newer

Name me a game that can use or benefit from 3gb+ of ram please?

The only reason to have 4gb is for 2x2gb to get dual channel. Even on 64bit system i cant think of any game that will run better with any more ram than 3gb?

And if your any sort of gamer you will have either patched xp for dx10 or be using 7 anyway :)

crysis certainly seems to run better with more memory :whistling:

edit: i think the general conclusion is that too much is better than too little
#19
Alt + Tabbing out of Crysis would be almost impossible without 4GB of RAM. 8GB's a bit excessive for most stuff atm but 4GB's healthy!
#20
lol i knew crysis would get raised...simple fact is that ONE game brings 90% of anyones setups to it's knees.

only now with i7 and super fast ram is it playable at high resoloutions and aa etc.

i don't disagree more is better but what i am trying to point out is 4gb is too much and anything over is simply a waste.

people may argue the 64bit angle but the 3rd party driver support is still crap for this platform and any serious gamer with a combination of nvidia/ati/creative/logitech/razer etc won't touch any 64bit OS with a barge pole.

imo 64bit os users are nearly as bad as mac users and not far behind linux ones either....

and this is where people who have a clue stop listening to you.

A lot of games I play can eat 2GB+ of ram on x64 (not just Crysis!). Now, taking into account that Vista and 7 will use over a gigabyte of RAM by itself when it has room to breathe (1.2GB here), that leaves about 500-800MB for everything else like MSN and iTunes (which uses up to 120 mB itself) or whatever. I've also read that Windows 7 will use spare RAM over the hard drive for it's cache, though I'm not overly sure on that.

And yes, it's easier to just minimise a game to talk on MSN than it is to continually close it. 4 GB is not a waste, so sorry to the morons that are trying to look smart by putting everyone else down.
#23
It’s not about whether one application demands more than 4GB but that multitasking can demand more than 4GB.
I posted this deal more for people that might want to split the RAM though as typical home users don’t require more than 4GB.
#24
with the price of 2x2gb doubling i think this was a decent deal if you looked at splitting it
