Help me pick memory!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay, so my system is pretty much built. I currently have this memory:

Just sitting in my apartment, I got it on sale for $75. However, I've been doing some reading, and I can't seem to understand how good it is. I'm considering sending them back and ordering:

I have done a ton of research on every component except memory, and I would like for someone to make this part easy for me.

The rest of my build is in my sig, I plan on doing mostly gaming on 1 monitor.

Thank you

If those Ripjaws X 2133MHz work, there great memory, but I've read a lot of people having problems getting the 2133 to work, the 1600MHz would have been a better choice.

But since you already have them, you might as well try them and see if they work at spec speed!

I couldn't get them to run at 2133 at first, enabled XMP in bios and it tuned right to 2133 and that's what they run at!
