OCZ Performance Series PC4400 Dual Channel Kit

OCZ'sĀ gorgeous 1GB dual channel kits are found on for just $369. A 512MB kit is available for $195. Price Watch can't find a lower (or higher) price than this, but has the 1GB kitĀ for $558 Canadian, which is $419 USD.

Like Corsair and Kingston, OCZ offers a full lifetime warranty on their ram. Unlike those two however, OCZ allows you to push it beyond spec and still maintain a full warranty. While they are rated at 2.8V, you can feel free to push them to 2.9V and still be covered by warranty. OCZ seems to be the only company encouraging us to push our ram beyond their own specs, and in fact will reward you if you do!
