I have just ordered a Foxconn Blackops X48 motherboard. I will be using my trusty Q6600 G0.

I just want some opinion on which speed of DDR3 ram I should go for. I am looking at the GSkill Ripjaws 2x2gb DDR3 1600 and the 1333. Any opinion? I am in UK.

Budget? + are you going to OverClock too ?

As low as possible... I am JUST willing to pay the £70 for the GSkill ones.

Yes, I am going to overclock.

I wouldn't bother with DDR3 on a FSB setup. Everything will slow down once your memory transfers onto the bus. If you have already bought a DDR3 mobo, either sell it and move back to DDR2, or just buy some DDR3-1333.

Get 1333Mhz modules with the lowest timings possible.
