I was thinking about getting 512MB PC 2700 Winbond/Nanya RAM, Do you think it's a good idea? or should i get link to Samsung Memory The Nanya is about $18 cheaper than the Samsung
I don't overclock all I want is good reliable memory which runs without any issues. I am a touch worried after hearing about issues with Crucial and Kingston RAM with this motherboard. Plus, I am having stability issues

Thanx

I like Corsair. I'm running 1024megs (2x512) PC3200. My Corsair has been performing excellent on my Epox 8RDA+!

I'm running PC2100 from Crucial and my friend is running PC2700 from Crucial with no problems on our 8RDA (non +)

thanx ppl. Corsair is out of question, I don't see the point in spending so much on Corsair when I don't even overclock. I just want some decent RAM which runs without any issues. I am leaning towards Samsung/Crucial, don't think Kingston is available in UK?

I would go with Crucial. I have heard of no such compatibility problems with that motherboard and Crucial memory. In fact, I have never heard of compatibility problems with Crucial memory and any motherboard. If you are still worried, then Nanya does make quality memory. If you aren't overclocking, it should serve you fine. Just don't get generic memory, you will regret it later when your system is unstable.

You don't overclock at all? Or you don't overclock past 166Mhz? If you don't overclock at all, you can use generic PC2100. I run my memory at 166 and use generic PC2700. Since I have no plans to overclock past stock PC2700 speeds, I saw no reason to get the more expensive stuff. I paid $50 for 512 MB of Simpltech at Newegg.

Kingston Hyper X works just fine.... and you can run it at 166 (2700) and it's VERY stable.... no problemo... you could go higher, but you said you don't want to :)
