New egg has some good deals at last on there DD3 6gig memory.

I am just doing a i7 920 build and am looking to use a ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 as its also on a deal.


I am going to use this PC for mostly gaming and a bit of work and will look to overclock at some stage what memory should I be looking at.


There are 2 combo's
OCZ Obsidian 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model OCZ3OB1600LV6GK - Retail

OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1600LV6GK - Retail

And even the CORSAIR XMS3 has a bit of money off

CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C8 G - Retail

You probably can't go wrong with the second and third choices. The first one I cannot recommend at all. However I consider the Corsair memory to be slightly better in term of motherboard support and quality.

I checked the other Newegg listings but still suggest either the Corsair XMS3 or OCZ Gold above those others I saw.
