Go for a PC2 6400 RAM with 4-4-4-x or lower timings
that RAM that u have choosed is solid and has pretty good timings
also if u had the $, i would still recommended PC2 6400 instead of
PC2 8000/8500 because the difference isnt much and also PC2 6400 OCs very well too
I am considering building a similar system. The only difference is that I am going with a 780i board (I want to run an SLI setup) and am only going to consider 2x2 set of memory.
When you say that the DDR2800 overclocks well you arent talking about running it out of spec are you? In other words that it will run out of the DDR2800 speeds? You mean that the cpu will overclock well with that memory right? I'm a bit new to overclocking intel chips but am learning fast.
