Buying 2GB of Ram from America
I need a ram upgrade (currently 512x 2 @ 220 2.5-4-3-11 2T), and I thought that I might take advantage of my parent's trip to America, by getting them to purchase 2GB of ram for me.
I had a look at Newegg for options, and found:
Rosewill 2GB DDR 400 (Model RW400/2048KITDP) 2.5-3-3-7 @ 2.6v - $185US ($240AUD)
GeIL Value 2GB DDR 400 (Model GE2GB3200BDC) 3-8-4-4 @ 2.55v - $180US ($235AUD)
OCZ 2GB DDR 400 (Model OCZ4002048ELDCPE-K) 2-3-2-5 @ 2.6v - $270US ($350AUD)
CORSAIR XMS 2GB DDR 400 (Model Twinx2048-3200c2pt) 2-3-3-6 @ 2.5v - $245US ($320AUD)
I'm guessing the OCZ ram would be the best, but I'm not sure if I can stretch my budget that much.
Would the latency make much of a difference for me (s754 a64, used for games and cad work)?
I've never heard of Rosewill, is it a decent brand?
Any other reccomendations?

yeah the OCZ looks good, and not really. The latency wil be faster but it will not be as much that it isnt worth going 2Gb. Yes it will run at 2T, but there will be more of it, so if your doing stuff that needs lots of ram, then the 2GB will help, even if it is slower at the same speed.

don't know if you'd see much difference between the 1 and 2GB. Cad, yes maybe or HDR HL2 expansion when it comes out.
as for 1/2T with the S754, i am unsure. you probably need to check with the manufacturer beforehand for compat. with your mobo and CPU.
