What RAM should I choose? Tags: Memory RAM Last response: August 2, 2008 2:36 AM in Memory Share I like pie August 2, 2008 12:26:56 AM Hi, I'm wondering what RAM (DDR2) to get for a new computer I'm making. Some specs for as follows: Mobo: Asus P5Q-e CPU: Intel e8400 What else do you need? I plan on overclocking to 3.6ghz (400x9) right away, and maybe 4ghz (445x9) later on w/ an OCZ Vendetta 2 HSF. My budget for RAM is ~150 CAD, so nothing over that. Thanks. Also, I'm hoping for 4GB (2x2Gb) of RAM for Vista Premium 64-bit. Thanks in advance.

Mondoman August 2, 2008 2:22:23 AM Don't buy any RAM with a spec voltage higher than 1.9V -- it'll just be a factory OC.
