No hotlinked images. Thank you.

I had a really bad experience with XFX have they changed (was 8+ years ago though) i HAD 6600GT fail and they would not replace it, OCUK thought for me for 3 odd weeks before they gave in,i ended up with a PNY Graphic
card.

Also that Ram looks cool, is the company any good though? £10 cheaper and has LED's all over is it not cheaper parts?

About XFX, I bought one of their modular PSUs off them earlier this year and discovered the ATX 24pin had a broken pin so it wouldn't fit the mobo. Sent them off an email at about 9pm, got a reply in about 15 minutes or so. Sent them a few pics for documentation purposes (their words not mine), they sent me a new cable for free from Germany (or maybe Netherlands). All in all took about 3 days from the first email to the cable arriving, completely free and a pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend

(PSU is awesome as well :D)

They look very well made and review pretty well.
I've got the 8gb version arriving tomorrow, so I'll let you know how they are :)
They'd go very nicely with your mobo as mentioned.

Ram seems pretty decent. They feel solid, have a satisfying weight to them and do exactly what they're supposed to do :D

If I could change one thing, it'd be to have an option to set the lights to on, off or strobe. As it is, they just strobe which is fine.
