Poor People like Scott and Jeremy love this shitty RAM. For everyone else, there is Corsair.

And for people that like fast and cheap, there's G.Skill ;-). Edit: Corsair is quality stuff too though, I agree.

I rock GSkill personally but Corsair is another solid brand. To be 100% honest ram is mostly all the same in the end unless your benchmarking or on an APU.

I buy RAM by the pound from China (Corsair min. $25K/month). Gskill fails 2x-3x as often. Fuck them. Corsair FTW. Also, no one at G Skill speaks FUCKING American. Corsair is mostly Chinese-Americans, and some are Latino, but hey, they're all US Citizens, and everyone at Fremont speaks Engrish fairly well. #MAGA #TRUMP2016 #USAFTW #CorsairFTW

Don't most gaming notebooks come with two soldered on sticks of RAM and an additional two slots for expansion? Would you benefit from the performance RAM if you combined it with the pre-installed ones?
