I was wondering what the differences are between a 512mb stick of RAM from different companies such as PNY or Kingston? An answer would be appreciated because I'm thinking about buying a stick today.

If the specs are the same they are pretty much the same, but not all RAM is the same when it comes to performance. A stick of Kingston value RAM is not going to perform as well as say a stick of Crucial Balistic.

If you know what RAM you have just match what you have. You can always go to most any site of a major manufacturer of RAM and they will have an adviser that you enter the information regarding your computer/motherboard and they will suggest modules that they have tested and know will be compatible with your computer.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Most RAM manufacturer's offer a warranty - the best one's are lifetime.

I have found that, unless you're a hardcore tweaker or gamer - you won't notice much difference between the major brands.
