No need for that pricey memory, grab a 1600 kit for ~$40 or 8GB 1600 for ~$80. You'll see no difference with fast memory, it is largely irrelevant to real world performance.

Newegg shellshocker, looks like a great deal for 8GB.

My lord, the price of the F3 has gone up.
Usually you can find them on the Egg for ~55$.
But looks good to me.

You really want to try and stick with Ram that is 1.5V for a SB setup. Try these : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231314

Enter the promo code and they will knock $19 off and your cost will only be $76. That's a decent price for good ram. They are 1.5V too and they will work better too.
