Looking for memory upgrade on my Asus P6X58D-E X58 First generation motherboard.
Hi, Most of you won't remember x58 (1366) but those of you who do.. I bought this system three years ago and was using a triple channel kit(2x3 GB Corsair XMS something). One of my RAM's got busted, I figured it out when I started getting blue screen of death. I removed the faulty stick and now my system is stable, but 4GB just doesn't cut for recently released games. Now I am thinking of getting a dual channel high performance ram (2x4GB). But just cannot understand which one to buy. Please advise, my current configuration is listed below.
I am willing to shell out $150 - $200 for a decent upgrade. Mobo Asus P6X58D-E Processor Intel I7 950 Graphics Card Sapphire ATI 6970HD 2GB GDDR5 Cooler master evo HSF Corsair Force SSD 120 GB 2TB WD Green 1TB WD Black 3 (2 +1)TB External WD Portable
Thank you in advance.

For a 2x4GB and your rig, would look to the GSkill Snipers or Ripjaws X in 1600/8 or 1866/9 (and yes many of remember the X58) still have a lot of them out there, that I built humming along nicely
