New Mobo and RAM...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I'm looking at grabbing an ASRock Deluxe5 in anticipation of BD, and I need some RAM to go with it.
What do you guys suggest for price/performance? And do I need to go 8GB at this time?
Also, is there a better mobo I could be getting around that price point? I'm not really concerned with the 990 chipset, as the features I've seen are marginal at best. I do need 2x16 PCIE, and the ability to get my PCI SB card in there as well.
I'll be using my 955 until BD drops, and possibly for a bit after till all the kinks are worked out.
Also...why does Amazon list this board for near $300 and the Egg has it for $180???

I have that mb and love it...overclock options are unreal.....as far as ram...most say 4g is still plenty, I have used both 4 and 8 modules in mine and both worked fine although the 4g overclocked more, but thats because of AMD imc so bd imc may not matter as much. As far as brand, options are yours all seemed to work fine.
edit:I was going to put a link up for my current ram but it's no longer available but it was cas7
