You can save $4 by getting this combination and get a slightly faster CPU and a better motherboard that has better built-in graphics.

1. GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H
2. AMD ADX245OCGQBOX
Combo Price: $120.98

You can then save $8 on the RAM because it uses DDR2 instead of DDR3

I'd split the difference and get the G-Skill RAM in my build with the components in the build above. I didn't see the Wintec RAM on the memory support list for the ASUS motherboard.

http://dlsvr04.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socketAM3/M4A785-M/...

You're in good hands with brands like ASUS and Antec.


Well I'm confident the Wintec RAM would work. But to be on the safe side, might as well go with the G.Skill instead.
