    Default Crucial Ballistix Sport Series 8GB Kit (4GBx2) DDR3 PC3-12800, 1600MHz

    Today, we have a different look at memory which we do not see as often. It is called budget memory. All the memory we tested recently with higher frequencies sells from $75 and more for 8G kits. So for anyone looking to put 16GB to 32GB in their system, let's face it, maximizing your memory capacity can be rather pricey. Not everyone wants to spend this kind of cash for memory. Enter the Crucial Ballistix Sport Series at a price of just $51.99 for an 8GB Kit!

    Nice review Jim!!! great set of memory for the money.
    This will be good for those not looking for memory with tall heat spreaders...

    Sam your kidding. There may be some better looking modules but although these may be slightly meh, they are conservative and look decent in monochromatic schemes.....

    Looks don't really matter when it comes to this kit because they perform so well. What I don't like about the look is the heat spreader doesn't cover the stick completely. Hate seeing the green sticks, but that's just my opinion. I really like the look and performance of the G.Skill Tridents but they are a ton more money so these sticks are a lot of bang for the buck.

    Yup.. its good ram.. I've been running a set for a while now.. its installed on my AMD bench as we speak...
    Switched them out a while back from the XMS that were installed. Got them at MC for $39.99 when they had the sale.
