I've been lurking over all the memory deals lately trying go find (2x4) 8 gb for my new sandy bridge build.
I keep finding 1333 deals at 60-80, but nothing at 1600. My default memory at 1600 would be the g.skill ripjaws at 109.
So my question is, will I even know the difference? A 50 dollar difference isn't insignifigant. My build is already over budget pushing 1800 bucks so I'd like to pinch a little here and there if possible. On the other hand, if I've already spent nearly 1800 bucks, what's a few dollars more for quality memory?
Also, I could save money if i got 4x2gb instead, but that kind of removes all futureproofing if ever I need more ram.
+2-8 FPS 1333 vs 1600; 1-4% overall increase. I would recommend 2X4GB vs 4X2GB, if 8GB is the goal today - it's the most efficient. Remember there's 1333 faster than 1600 and 1600 slower than 1333 - it depends on the RAM's IC.
Heh...you know..it's that line of thinking that got me in the trouble in the first place.
Well, i could have gotten a hafx for cheaper, but what's 50 bucks for an ft02? I could have gotten a vertex2, but what's a couple bucks for a c300? I could have kept my 5850, but what's 150 bucks if I sell my 5850 for a 6950....etc...I think I need to stop myself.
Already downstepped from the asus p8p67 deluxe to pro, Decided to get the 2500k instead of the 2600k.
The G.skill sniper is on sale for 75 bucks at 1333. The G.skill ripjaws are 109. I believe both are 9-9-9-24. Actually, the ripjaw is 9-9-9-24-2N. I'm not sure what the 2N means.
yeah, I spend inordinates amount of time in front of the computer, and money isn't that big a deal, but come on...45 bucks is a bottle of glenfiddich..er...2/3 of a bottle.
The Vengeance are nice, but yeah, i'm the guy you spoke to in the other thread with the hunking nh-d14. I'm pretty sure (i'm positive -just checked) that those king triton's crown fins on the vengeance is a nono for the austrian behemoth.
Hmm...I guess I could take the fan off the cooler. After all, I got 3 penetrator fans underneath blowing up.
