Which RAM to pick, quick

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey,

Building a new i5 Sandybridge system, and i've got a question which RAM would be better to buy and which 1 would perform better for gaming and i would like to overlock the PC aswell, how far i could go etc.

Mainboard S-1155 ASUS P8P67 Pro, ATX
Prozessor INTEL Core i5 - 2500K, 3,30GHz, LGA1155, Quad-Core, Boxed
PSU ATX 650 Watt, CORSAIR 650TX, 80Plus
GFX CARD ATI HD4850 512mb&256bit - for now, keeping it from old PC
DDR3-RAM KIT 4 GB, 1600 MHz, CL9, CORSAIR XMS3
CASE Midi THERMALTAKE M9
DVD-+R/-+RW SATA LG GH-22NS50, bulk,
HDD SATA II Samsung SpinPoint F4, 320 GB, 16MB Cache - from old PC

That's the list of RAMS i can buy and which are available, as i'm going to buy all parts from the same shop : http://www.ditech.at/gruppe/997/Peri...DR-3_4_GB.html

Thanks

Get the lowest timing, highest speed you can afford. *edit* maybe it's not that easy. i think it also is supposed to run at 1.5v

Any of the ones on that page should certainly work, the Corsair Vengeance look to be the best that definitely hit the Intel specs for SB.

The price is pretty decent and they're running at 1.5v. Most modules on there are 1.65v to get better timings/speed. Also, either way you'll want two modules in there to get the dual channel performance. Whether it's 2x 2gb or 2x 4gb.
