Am thinking the corsairs personally, but would like to know other peoples opinion as i am no tech guru. I live value for money and wouldn't want to pay more for something if there difference is so minimal i wont even pick it up.

Thanks in advance guys,
Matt.

i think most intel users stick w/ trichannel. since i'm amd i have no clue whether this has a performance benefit to it but i would assume it has one just like dual channel. that said 4gigs is still sufficient for most current games.

although its not one of the ram tested. I was at the book store today and saw a article about memory from a uk pc magazine. it listed a triple channel kit from DANE ELEC and stated that it could oc up to 1300mhz! thats mind boggling if its for real.

Can anyone confirm this? Also any other input?

Yes you have dual channel. And get the Corsairs, Mushkins or Cruicials. Get the 1333MHz or 1600MHz 7-7-7-20 2X2GB Dual Channel kit.

From your Mother Board page.

Dual Channel DDR3 1900(O.C.)
Experience maximum system performance with advanced DDR3 1900MHz(O.C.) memory technology, featuring higher bandwidth and increasing performance with lower power consumption.
