Will this RAM work in my build? Tags: Build RAM Systems Product Last response: July 31, 2009 11:26 PM in Systems Share Dongle July 31, 2009 10:36:36 PM With the help of a few community members I put together a fairly cheap/powerful build. I am ordering Monday and continuing throughout the weekend to check prices on the items. The core being: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... (Mobo/GFX Card) http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... (Processor/OS) Will this RAM work with the mobo? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The pin matches (240) but I don't know if the SDRAM portion matters or not (excuse my lack of knowledge, google does not help). If so it is a good choice for the price? More about : ram work build tecmo34 July 31, 2009 10:46:38 PM Yes... the RAM you choose will work. Here is another RAM with better timings... G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL7D-4GBPI - Retail It is DDR3 1333 verus DDR3 1600 you picked, but the decrease in timings will make up the difference between the two. Remember in memory, the lower the timings are... the faster the memory is... Dongle July 31, 2009 11:03:51 PM Alright thank you, I look over that same ram you recommended in my other post. Also, would you recommend switching to this board to take off a little more? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... This board has the same combo with the GFX card (ASUS 4870 1gig).
