    I am about to take advantage of some low(but rising)ram prices...I am going toslap another 256 into my system and am curious as to what kind of ram(brand name) would be best...I currently have Micron in my system but have been pointed toward Kingston(have never heard of them before but now that I have looked online for them I see that quite a few computer stores carry them)...let me see if i can remember what i have in my system now...
    I have an ASUS motherboard,with an A7V (KT133), and I currently have the Micron PC133 168 pin SDRAM Simm(?)...the company that I purchased the system from mentioned that with the major drop in ram prices,there was also a bit of a drop in quality and they are the people that have decided to go with the Kingston now and are getting away from the Micron....
    Anybody have any thoughts on this?

    Kingston CL3 PC133 168pin SDRAM DIMM w/SPD EEPROM (256MB) is what they are suggesting...

    Thanks in advance
