Please help me choose the correct ram for the p35 ds3r

I'm having the hardest time choosing the correct ram for my gigabyte p35 ds3r board I am about to purchase. The gigabyte website is not loading for me and I can't see which rams will fit my system

Currently I have these rams in mind,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16820146565 Crucial Ballistix 2GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16820145034 CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227198 OCZ SLI-Ready 2GB (2 x 1GB)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227231 OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 2GB (2 x 1GB)

and if I must, I'll be going for these if the above 4 does not work
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820146677 mushkin eXtreme Performance 2GB

The 3 rams I have up there are about the same price, but its up the user's choice to choose which of the three ram pieces will be best. Can anyone please confirm which ram will fit in my new board which company's ram will over clock the best?

Thank you for your assistance!

  1. Get your first choice, the Ballistix. It's definitely on the GA approved list, and is excellent RAM. (I'm using it myself in the same mobo :lol: ) It's Micron D9 chips, and really likes this board.

    Just be sure to go into the BIOS and setup your timings and voltage. Crucial says it's 2.2v, but it runs nicely at 1.9v at stock speed. If you're going to OC the hell out it, you might need more juice. Be aware that some peeps are saying this board overvolts the Vdimm by up to 0.2v ... I just got this board, so my experience is not yet complete - but I'm slowly overclocking the CPU and the RAM is happy right now at 760MHz at 1.9v.

    Have fun!
