Good memory?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello.
I am in the final stages of ordering the parts for my system and I was thinking I'd run it one last time past the good people of OCN.
I am planning on a QX9650 and an eVGA 790i board. I was wondering if there was any memory out there that could work better than this (besides the $700 stuff):
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145200

Also, when newegg was out of stock of this, I looked around for some more and I came across the website zipzoomfly.com. I have never heard of this website before but they have most of the stuff I want like 20 dollars cheaper than newegg.
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...tCode=10008205
here is the same set of ram for 56 dollars cheaper.
Does anyone know if this place is reliable? Because if they are any good I'd like to save the 56 dollars, but if they are kind of sketchy I will pay more to get it from the egg.

Thank you

Oh, and PS, I have already decided on DDR3, I just need help deciding which exact type to get.

Oh, and the mail in rebate expires the 30th, so I would like to figure it out and buy it soon.
Thanks

Hi! Have I misunderstood something?

Is 7-7-7-24 better than 9-9-9-24?

yes, the lower the timings the better usually - unless it stops the ram from running at a decent speed.

I support the OCZ DDR3 as well. The only DDR3 memory worth buying at the moment IMO...

Thank you.
I was under the impression that timings really don't matter that much on intel rigs anyways.
