i7 build around $800 - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
Thanks for the opinions guys.

I did more looking and I'm leaning on the cheaper 875K. I don't really plan to upgrade parts in the next couple years (except maybe graphics), so I don't really see a personal benefit for my getting the 930 and more expensive mobo/RAM route.

That said, I was looking at mobos, and I'm stuck between these choices:
1) ASUS P7P55D-E Pro for $180
2) Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3 $130
3) Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P $170
If there's a better choice too, please tell me

Also, I'm actually pretty bad at understanding RAM, especially after not keeping up with it for the past couple years. So, could I have suggestions/preferences on the following?
1) G.Skill Ripjaws Series 4 GB (blue/red) $114 timing - 8-8-8-24
2) G. skill Ripjaws Series 4 GB (blue/red) $110 timing - 7-8-7-24-2N (what's the 2N mean?)
3) Mushkin Enhance Redline 4 GB $128 timing 7-7-7-18 (worth getting for the price difference?)
Again, other RAM suggestions would be greatly welcome
