Which DDR3 for this set up?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Cooler Master 1000
ASUS Maximus Extreme or Formula M/Board (likely former)
Intel Core 2 Quad 6700
Corsair CMPSU 750w PSU
HD4870
Thermalright HR-03GT VGA Heatsink
OC2 Vendetta 2
Seagate or WD 250 GB H/D (will add another for RAID a little later)
XP (will wait for Windows 7)

I have been going over and over posts here and checking out Memory and i really can't decide what will give me best performance. This is primarily a gaming system ((EVE Online) yes i have opted for quad for future need) and i really need some pointers for what memory to buy, as i really can't decide out of the options. Budget is anywhere up to around 250 USD.

I would opt for maybe OCZ/Corsair at speeds of around 1600-1800mhz.
