I wasn't getting a ton of answers in the Memory section, so I thought I'd poll you guys in this area and see what you think.

If you want, check out the original thread:

Basically, I'm trying to get memory for my upgrade. I'll be running an E8400 on an MSI P7N Diamond (780i) which I od plan to overclock (have the Tuniq Tower).

Please help out. The memory has to be one of those manufacturers, because they are certified by MSI and I trust most of the companies.

Thanks. Any suggestions are welcome.

It's natural people would defend their investments, so would I. See my vote.

You think the Ballistix are the best Akhilles? I like the 4x1GB that I have now.

Thanks.

Anyone else have an opinion?

Not the best, but the same as the other more expensive ones. See you want to get the best for the less. You can pick up other ram with the same micron d9 chips for more $$$. Up to you.
