    Price seems average. I have never tried this brand. I assume the choppiness is during game play? How much RAM do you now have? What operating system? What video card? All good information to get a better answer.

    If your going to buy RAM, get Crucial or Kingston. I find them to be the highest quality

    Don't buy no name ram. You'll most likely be sorry if you do. Kingston and crucial are good suggestions. There are others that are good. I have run Crucial and Kingston for the most part. I bought some centon at compusa when I was desperate and it was pure crap.

    Yeah, but you can most likely get it cheaper. That is good stuff though. Life time warranty and all.

    Edit: Canadian dollars. That is different. Yeah, thats good.

    Skivvywaver is right about the price. I just picked up the same 512 module at Circuit City for $49.99 after $35 rebate this week.

    SeeYa

    PS. Works great

    US Dollars, not sure what is available in Canada
