Help please!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Greetings all,

The time has finally come where I can afford the long awaited Ram and PSU upgrade I have been planning.

My question is this...I have read there alot of compatability issues with my mobo and some RAM. I was hoping someone might give some insight on which would be a better choice for my system...I am torn between these 2 sets:

G-Skill
Patriot

I am looking forward to your thoughts on either of these and my my current setup.

Thanks!

Go for the G.Skills
They require less voltage, and they are cheaper w/o rebate.

Negative. I have not started clocking yet. I am worried I will fry the board as my PSU is garbage. which is the next minor dilemma. I am so close to ordering...but I think that the 700w may be a bit overkill...I was just thinking for down the road.

Thank you for all the help all. I have placed the order after tweaking things a little (see my planned upgrades in the sig). Stuff should arrive by monday and then the overclocking begins!
