Good day to all,

I'm trying to decide on what kind of ram to buy for my comp. I'm unsure of which of the following I should get. Any technical sound recommendation? I would also appreciate a brief description as to why choose the one you recommending. Thanks in advance



Rig is as follow:

*Intel Core i7-920 Nehalem 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache

*ASUS P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

*CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active

*BFG Tech BFGEGTX2801024OCXE GeForce GTX 280 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16

*RAIDMAX Tornado ATX-238WU Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case (1 120mm Fan on rear, 1 80mm in front and 1 in side).

  1. Corsair CMP6GX3M3A1600C7 6G(3x2G) is suitable for you.

    (UK link, but that's the product)
    Corsair XMS3 is always a good choice, better quality then OCZ from what I've heard.

    That's the one.
    Also stick with 1333 if you're not overclocking, it'll save you money.
