Hi,
I am getting the Asus P7P55D-E PRO motherboard and are choosing suitable RAM for it.
I maybe only need 4GB but want to go 8GB because I will probably use it from time to time. (video editing)
I am in australia and want to buy all my components from pccasegear.
I have been to ASUS QVL and downloaded pdf showing compatible RAMs then tried to match up with PCCaseGear's avalible Memory :??:  Didnt do so well here as no 8GB kits in QVL.
So since I like Cosair and G.Skil I went and use their memory selectors (Cosair) & (G.Skill)
Results
Cosair - CMX8GX3M4A1600C9 (4x2GB) DDR3 = $172
G.Skill - Ripjaws F3-12800CL9D 8GBRL (2x4GB) DDR3 =$170
G.Skill - 2 x Ripjaws F3-10666CL7D 4DGRH (2x2GB) DDR3 = $178

So if Corsair and GSkill say they are compatible, then they will be?
What would your choice be?
If you can find me a better choice from here please let me know.
Thanks

I would go with the Cas7 G.SKILL set but may I ask why you need 8GB? Most system are more than fine with 4GB. You don't start seeking a need for more RAM unless doing heavy CAD/Adobe type of work.

Yes I do actually do some AutoCAD work, but its on a smaller scale. Ripping/Encoding Blurays etc. I dont want to be held up when multitasking. Sure its limited by other components like CPU but wouldn't be better to get it in the first place then have to turn around later and get more.

Understand where you are coming from on getting it now versus later. You system could benefit more RAM, I'm just not sure how much... Guess it is "be safe with more than regret by not having enough" :D
