Which 4 GB RAM kit to buy with Asus P5K-E

I have an Asus P5k-E that I have purchased back in 2008 with 2 GB of Corsair memory. I have Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit but would like to reinstall Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and purchase a WD Velociraptor 300 GB with a 4 GB memory kit.

But Im not sure which 4 GB RAM kit would well suit my P5K-E along with the WD Velociraptor that I am planning on purchasing next month.

Which 4 GB kit would any of you recommend to go along with the P5K-E and a WD Vecociraptor?

  2. if your not overclocking then its not really going to matter

    considered a solid state instead? All mechanical drives perform about the same in comparison to solid state drives

  4. Thank you treefrog07! Will look at them.

    apache_lives, I have not considered a solid state drive. Im not sure that a 10 000 RPM is about the same as a 7200 RPM. But will look into Solid state drives, althought they are expensive at the moment, unless you know of a good place to get them.
  5. You're welcome. I hope your build POSTS properly the first time.
