RAM Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and I was just wondering which RAM I should get for the system I am trying to build. I'm debating between a couple 6gb 3x2gb. My budget for this system is about $1500-1700. Right now with everything except for my RAM. I'm at about $1460.

My System:

Case: Cooler Master HAF X 942
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R
Processor: i7-950 Bloomfield
PSU: CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-750HX 750W
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14
GPU: EVGA SC GTX 580
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200RPM

So that leaves me with anywhere from about 120-240 for my RAM. The choices I've been looking at are:

G.SKILL Ripjaws + Turbulence II Series 6GB (3 x 2GB)

Mushkin Enhanced Ridgeback 6GB (3 x 2GB)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226125

CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145289

CORSAIR DOMINATOR GT 6GB (3 x 2GB)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145292


Those are the choices I was deciding between. If you guys can help me pick that would be great. Or if you have your own suggestions I'm open to anything.

Timing is better on Mushkin and CORSAIR. Mushkin is cheaper of the two!

That is my logic!

Get the Blue 1600MHz Dominators if you're ok with the price, or get the Mushkins if you want a budget-wise decision. I can vouch for Mushkin from personal experience, OCs like a monster, the rest should be great as well.

I think im going to go with the Corsair Dominators.

Which puts my total at 1620 with the microcenter discounts on a few of my pieces. Which i think is really good price for a computer like this.
