I was looking at these two 4gb sets:

Newegg.ca - CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Newegg.ca - OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

However, as far I as I know, the corsair "Dominator" RAM sets are the high-end enthusiast sets and the XMS2 is more mainstream...but then why is this dominator set only $55 (after rebate) on newegg?:

Newegg.ca - CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

EDIT: nevermind, that dominator RAM seems to be so cheap because (apparently) it has a lot of quality issues and isn't able to run at a stable 1066mhz (you have to "manually" set it to 1066mhz as the system will only recognize 800mhz)

I see, so basically, it's "better"

what about the Corsair and OCZ memory that I posted a link to in the OP, what do you think of those?

The XPs are the top of the Line.

Both sets you link are good ram sticks - no worries here. The Plats are even considered good clockers. I prefer Mushkin since they are very good oc'ers, run cool and they are compatible with every single board I ever had.
