I just bout an Asus P6X58D Premium MB and I dont know what memory I should get for it. I'm looking for 6 gb of 1600mhz ram with a budget of around 200 give or take a little (lower is always better lol). Let me know if you have any suggestions for me. A couple grands I had in mind were Mushkins and Gskills. Any thoughts?

You will not see any increase in performance using Ram faster then 1333 or at most 1600. Memory is not the choke-point in computing anymore Hard drives are. You would be better off looking for some ram in the 1333-1600 range with low CAS numbers, save some money and get a good SSD. Crucial just released their new Sata III drives.

Hi Snoboardfrk

Thanx for the award. The little I know of Intel gear is that they can use the low voltage ram better then AMD boards. The Mushkin has slightly better timings but the G-Skill is lower voltage and $20 cheaper and I have used G-Skill several times with never a prob.
