its actually like this

4890>4870=+/-260

the 260 and 4870 play tag ALOT. but overall it depends on what the size of each card is.

I'm no fanboy, but if you have A P45/X48 etc you should use ATI, it just makes sense. Pick up a 58xx when released, or go for bargain power on 4870s/4890s once prices drop.

An E0 stepping Q9550 and good HSF will go a long way, obviously a TRUE or Megahalems will be great, but even a Xiggy DK would do quite nicely.

I'd also agree with going for 1066 over 800 since you'll likely have to knock the RAM back a bit for a very high OC.

Uh, oh, I have my eye (actually both of them) on Crucial 4GB (2x2GB) 8500 memory, but it isn't in the QVL of P5Q Pro.

The 800MHz is on the list, but 1066 not.

Should I look for Corsair, OZC, G.Skill or try the Crucial first?

Why Crucial, you ask? Because it's 20-40 bucks cheaper and should (not sure) run as good as others.

Damn, I'm just looking for a good RAM!
