Marc's 2 Cents
In all, I think it is a resonable buy, and has good overclocking potential. Despite the "budget" tag, it is still quite expensive, considering the performance. I thought the benchmark scores would be a little more impressive, they disappointed me a bit.

I'm behind Marc 100% on this one. The ram isn't bad if you absolutely need to save some money, if PC3700 ram is what you're after specifically. Using a 1GB kit as an example, we spotted the OCZ PC3700 Premier selling for 479$. Taking a look at the PC3200 Platinum kit, which is a better performer despite the clock speed deficit, sells for 460$. PC3200 is passé? OCZ PC3500 Platinum, which I guarantee will blow the Premier away is 535$. All the prices I listed are in Canadian. Trust me, the extra 56$ is worth the time.
Pros: Nice heatspreaders, good overclocking potential
Cons: Runs very hot. Performance is not strong unless overclocked.
Bottom Line: The ram is of decent quality, but the price:performance ratio isn't enough for us to give it a recommendation. Spend the extra green, and you'll be much happier.
