Always nice to read a new memory review :)
Two Q's:
-What's the difference between the "Small Body" and "Fat Body" DDR2 IC's?

-Just out of curiosity, is this memory a sample that Wintec chose and sent you or is it a random sample from their line or from retail?

From what I can see, this memory does well to be under 200 bucks for a gig kit. Being able to keep up with XMS and KHX chips is saying a good deal IMO. But, considering I'm just gonna do some moderate processes with my build, I believe the Corsair VS 1 GB kit of DDR400 (512 x 2) will do me just fine, considering it's only like $83 on sale :)

DDR1 PC-3200 is going to get more expensive... grab it at today's pricing while you can.

you bet your bottom dollar I plan on doing so, because I'm just going to build a cheap system for right now, but with the case I want for my "uber-system); the cheap system takes DDR400, so I'm definitely going after the 1GB ValueSelect kit from Corsair while it's cheap. Seems like it's doing the same thing regular SDRAM did when DDR became commonplace.
