LGA 1155 motherboard questions

I want to get this processor: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500K

Also what RAM should I be looking at? I had this suggestion: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBXM

Now this is the motherboard I'm looking at: ASUS P8P67 DELUXE (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

now the memory it can handle is DDR3 2200(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/1866(O.C.)/ 1600/1333/1066, should the above be good enough and fast enough?

I play some games and mostly do a lot of stuff with photos but I want my programs to open faster than they do. Thanks

  1. that ram is fine...I was actually using the same ram @ 1333 mhz with a 4.0ghz oc on that same motherboard... maybe consider getting the 1600mhz...then, you'll be good!

    Isn't that what I have there listed, the 1600mhz?
  3. I have that same memory Ripjaws X DDR3 1600 cas 7 and it will work great with your new computer.

    So I wouldn't need anything faster? Right now I running XP but hope to save enough to get 64 bit Win 7 then add more RAM

    DDR3 1600 is Sandy Bridge's "sweet spot". You will be fine with that memory.
  6. Not that it matters but I read it wrong I have the 8GB kit. 2 x 4GB modules but it is the same DDR3 1600 cas 7.
