I know nothing...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have no clue whats good ram... Its so frustrating, it all looks the same... I have heard many a good thing about G.Skill so I post you a link of all the DDR3 G.Skill newegg offers

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...rchResult=True

It all looks the same and is basically the same price.. what makes each one different? and aside from the trident it all looks the same.

can anyone hit me with a link to inform me or hit me with some knowledge?

The big difference between them is the timings. Look for a set that has low timings and low voltage. Getting 9-9-9-24 at 1333 is considered low end DDR3.
