Advice on my 650$ build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi.

Please give your opinion about RAM. Should I choose DD3 1600 RAM with CL7 or 9, if I will overclock this machine ? Or maybe it actually doesn't matter ?

GPU- Radeon HD 6950 2GB
Board- BIOSTAR TA890FXE
CPU- AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE
RAM- G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB CL9, 9-9-9-24-2N.

P.S.

650$ without PSU and case.

1600Mhz shouldn't hold back the system with a black edition processor. You may wish to choose CL7 for better performance. These Kingston HyperX Blu 1600 CL9 cost the same as those Ripjaws before rebate, and $15 less after rebate. For a lower price you will reach CL8 guaranteed and perhaps also CL7. The Ripjaws normally use PSC ICs, which may have problems on the TA890FXE. I think the HyperX Blu uses a different IC (Elpida variant) rather than PSC, but I'm not too sure.
