which RAM to choose for e760 classified

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I built this system about a year and a half ago. The GTX295 was the fastest card at the time and there were no 4Gb memory sticks available. I skimped and got the ocz gold 1600 6x2GB and have suffered random bsod's until recently I discovered one of the kits was bad. The RMA'ed it and gave me a refund. So I am torn between 2 different sets of gskill either the G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9T-12GBRL, and then there is also the other one but the timing are the same so I was wondering if there would be much of a difference in the ripjaws or these: G.SKILL Sniper Gaming Series 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9T-12GBSR

The prices are the same, and I am saving for a wedding and honeymoon so splurging on this machine is not an option, at least not until the honeymoon is over. My next upgrade will be an ssd, then a new gfx card. Thanks for any suggestions!

From what I've read, the Sniper's are binned better, so they would be the preferred.
But really, both are high quality memory!

If you can get the RipjawsX, I really like them, they've performed great for me.

Thanks for the quick reply. I will look around some more for the ripjawsX. I was kinda torn between the 2, the ripjaws come with a 4Gb flash drive, and both have free shipping and at 109.00 thats a great deal anyways the timings are the same so I was just wondering of the 2 which one was better. Thanks again for your help!

No problem.
Ripjaws, or Snipers, you can't go wrong!

I had lots of inexplicable problems running Corsair Dominators at spec on my Evga X58 board, RMA'd twice with no improvement, went to Mushkin and everything was perfect from then on. G.Skill is pretty solid from what I hear, you should have no problems.

Yep, my last experience with Corsair Dom's was a bad one to, and have been steering clear of them. Not sure if it's just the latest supply of IC's, or just a quality control problem.
But for the last year or so, I've been getting great ram from G.Skill.
