Motherboard/Ram upgrade advice needed. Tags: Homebuilt RAM Motherboards Systems Product Last response: December 13, 2006 1:55 PM in Systems Share vpiscitelli December 13, 2006 12:59:03 PM Time to upgrade my motherboard and ram. Need some advice. My budget is pretty open. I don't mind paying for quality, however, what I don't like is overpaying for it I currently have an E6600 and a 7950GT. Also, I am keeping my HDs (RAID0 - SATA using on-board raid controller). Power supply is ample at 600W (SilenX). Have sound card as well. I have been looking around and haven't been able to narrow down a good motherboard/RAM combo. I definitely want 2 Gigs of RAM. I will be OC'ing a little, nothing to heavy. To be perfectly honest, matching the RAM to a motherboard has me a bit perplexed...that's why I'm here. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

One problem...I'm in Canada and cannot find anywhere that sells SUPER TALENT. Why are they so good? Is there something comparable from Kingston, Crucial, OCZ, etc... that I could look in to? apt403 December 13, 2006 1:55:56 PM super tight timings, and there basiclly the same quality as the high end corsair stuff, only cheaper. this patriot stuff is the closest i could find to the super talent ram i suggested. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820220144 there is corsair dominator ram, it'll cost about twice as much as the super talent stuff, although it comes with a pretty good cooler and its definatly high quality. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145165 Can't find your answer ?
