My first attempt at building a PC! :O

Hi Everyone!

I am attempting for the first time to build my own PC but I am not totally confident in what memory to buy and I was hoping some of you may help me out!
Hopefully after all this I will be a little wiser :ange:

With this PC I was hoping to find a good balance between cost and performance, so far I have decided to go for (and already ordered!)

-AMD Phenom II 955 3.2ghz Processor
-Sapphire ATI 4850x2 (2gig version)
-GA-MA790XT-UD4P Gigabyte Mobo

But with the DDR3 memory I wanted to go for something that performs pretty well, is a reliable brand and not TOO expensive (approx. £120 for 4gig, this can give or take depending on recommendation).
Most the DDR3 on the compat list for that mobo seem to be brands I wouldnt be 100% using or lower grade...... but I'm no expert.... So if someone can make some suggestions on good DDR3 that would be compatible that would be great!


Thanks!!

  1. Actually G.skill and Kingston are both quite reliable, but that's just what they happened to test.

    However, this lower voltage lower latency Mushkin is sure to be a winner... Your CPU only really uses 1066, anything beyond that is wasted.
