Thread Starter 
thx a lot Nutty_Pumpkin and Canadarocker!
im still kinda confused wut to go for...
i mean... lilke u said... having to much can cause issues....
maybe i should go for "G.SKILL F3-10666CL7D-4GBRH Ripjaws PC3-10666 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1333 CL7-7-7-21 Core i5 1.5V Memory Kit" instead? since its like half price... better timings... and 4G is all i need anyways?
but i c most people go for 4G 1600...
im so confused....lol...
help plz...
sorry about all the noobs questions...
im just tryin to figure out wut to do before its too late for me to exchange parts.
thank you!

That kit will suffice nicely.

Go for it.

Personally I'd get the 8GB kit, saves you from upgrading it in a year.

G.Skill makes good ram, so you shouldn't have a problem with your OC. You just need something that will be stable when you raise your clock speed. OCing ram shows minimal increases in benchmarks and practically zero real world gains, so don't worry too much about what speed its running at.

Most people choose 1600 because its a nice middle of the road, balancing decent frequency with timings, and above that (@ 1866 and higher) there is a huge jump in price for practically no gains in speed.

thank you.
Im thinking about gettin 4G instead of 8G is because I searched around and people say 8G gives more stress to the MB when comes to oc... is that gonna be a problem?
and when u oc ur cpu... don't u oc ur ram at the same time too?
at least thats what I found lol.... sorry Im really new to this oc thingy...
so confused!!

That depends more on how many slots you have filled. 8GB in 2 slots uses less power than 8GB in 4 slots.

Yes and no. As you raise clock speeds the ram speed increases as well, however you can decrease the the clock multiplier for the ram so the frequency goes down again.

This thread might help you.

All you'll need is 4GB, upgrading in a year is totally acceptible.

the problem is...
even after a year...lets say i need 8GB....but cuz of my MB limit...
will i not be able to get better ram on this board?
if thats the case then i'll have to sell my 2x2 then get 2x4?
but if i will be able to get beter ram on my MB a year after.. thats another story lol...
thx again guys~
