“At the end of the day it’s best to work out what your needs are. For general usage XMS memory is pretty much a waste of good memory, the same even applies to users that spend a fair bit of time gaming. For these tasks Value Select will do the job just as well and should save you a few dollars. Power users will appreciate what the Corsair XMS memory has to offer them. When it comes to overclocking there is nothing better than memory guaranteed to hit seriously high frequencies.”
