Need some input

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Im slowly rebuilding my desktop and have finally gotten everything except for the RAM and need some help choosing. I have this mobo and an AMD Phenom x3 740 BE cpu. I will be using it for gaming and some light video editing.

I was looking at this but do not know if its the best choice. I really appreciate your input.

Thanks for the input, I've heard good things about muskin ram. Im going to do some research on the ram that you posted and wait for some more input. Is there anything wrong with the ripjaws that I posted, or are they on par with what you posted?

nothing wrong with that ripjaws.
they looks cool but
1600 9-9-9-24-2N
i prefer higher clock ram with tighter timing,
mushkin 1600 7-8-7-20
Gskill eco 1600 7-8-7-24-2N

if you can stress your budget abit

Looks are the last thing on my mind. The only reason I was asking was because I have some friends who were pushing me to get this ram. Now will I be able to OC better with tighter timings? I new to OC'ing.
