The difference in price for 16gb is 100€. The one you linked cost in my country 200€ the faster 300€.

You know im a bit, if not very picky when it comes to the look and would love to have the black RipJaws with the Black Gigabyte, my whole PC would be completly black & white with just a little blue then eek.giftongue.gif would look amazing!

Ahh I see.

Since they're both 1600 MHZ and they both can operate at the same timings, it's really up to you on which direction you want to take. If the black ones are worth the extra 100€ to you, that's your choice my friend. wink.gif

For the RAM, the speed is more important than the timings, and we found 1600 MHZ and in this particular case the timings can be tightened up saving you some dough.

The UD4 vs the P8P67 Pro, either board will suit your needs, they're about the same price, and at the end of the day it's a matter of preference.

You've got all the info now, and you should have a pretty good idea on which way to go.

One last final thought is that once the computer is built, how often are you going to look inside it?

Personally, I would put more importance into budgeting an SSD into the build vs considering an extra 100€ for the color of the RAM, JMO. wink.gif

At the end of the day, this is YOUR computer, and make sure to get what YOU want, you don't want to have any regrets later. I just helped to clarify some of ur questions, and hopefully pointed you in the right direction. Keep doing your research on everything that has been said here.

Good luck with your build, it's going to be solid! thumb.gif

I ordered all the components a week ago but i will still have to wait a week more or so.

This is how my new setup will look like.

The I7 2600 better than the I7 960? Nonesense.

We do video editing under XP. We recently upgraded our systems. Guess which system could run without crashing all day long. It was definitely not the I7 2600K. The I7 960 is ROCK SOLID under XP. As for the performance difference: Negligible. In fact I didn't see any. We exchanged our I7 2600K P67 against an I7 960 X58. Stability again.

For professional use which requires reliability and stability I would not exchange an I7 960 against an I7 2600K under any circumstance. Of course, I can't speak for gamers but the I7 960 with a 58 chipset platform is dfefinitely more stable. The performance difference is not relevant. Both are incredibly fast.

I call troll on this one.

If the SB setup is unstable, either you've got an unstable overclock or just faulty components. The i7 2600K *is* faster than a core i7 960, that's just the way it is. smile.gif

If your 2600k is unstable you have faulty hardware, unproper cooling or messed something up in the bios. We have vmware esxi servers running 4.6 ghz, SSD only. Extremely fast server and never had a crash or reboot since we took it into production (april). We are using each host to do CDR, TAP 3 and IP data rating, which is normally timeconsuming.

BTW its running 4.6Ghz on all cores.

I think you should bring your 2600k rig to an IT prof.

Poppycot. We spent 1 week doing the following test:

Premiere CS3 + Win XP + Raedon HD 5750 + Raid 0 eSATA

Take the Premiere Timeline with a 2 hour show. Play back the timeline. The playback was tested on 4 different machines:

I7 920 / 960 + Asus P6X58D-E
I7 2600 K + Asus P8P67
QUAD CORE Q9300 + Asus P5E

The Q9300 and the I7-2600K will crash after 40 minutes and 1 hour respectively. The I7 920 and 960 will not crash.

The test was conducted with a fresh XP install for each machine. Same software, same drivers. No overclocking was applied to any system.

The only difference were the motherboard drivers which were different for each machine. Ventillation was efficient *. Each motherboard had at least 4 Gig Ram.

* It must be stated that none of the systems crashed under Win 7 64 which proves that this is not a memory or heating problem.

i would still any day ask anyone to pick i7 2600k over i7 960, Not only the budget concerns but i7 2600k is indeed faster.
I have never experienced a single crash till now.
