Again there are so many choices and knowing the (sometimes subtle) difference is overwhelming. This forum has helped me greatly in deciding on components


This is waht I have so far:

i5 750 cpu
asus motherboard (P7P55D deluxe or P7P55D-E Pro)
radeon HD 5750 Graphics card
western digital caviar black 640GB
antec earthwatts 500W PSU

Can you suggest some good reasonably priced 4GB memory from G.SKill, corsair, kingston, or OCZ?
I am not interested in overclocking.

Just be aware that with an i5 750 you can not run your RAM higher than 1333 MHz unless you OC.

There still are good reasons to get 1600 MHz RAM. For one, for whatever reason it can often be found cheaper than similar model 1333 MHz RAM. It also leaves room for OCing, and can sometimes be run at 1333 at lower voltage or tighter timings.
