Hey, so last night i made a post about getting a new cpu,mobo and ram.

this morning i woke up and was going to place the order (should have done it last night) and the memory i wanted is out of stock!

this is what i was going to get.
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

can you recommend any other memory? i liked the g skill because it was CL 7, 1.5 volts and 1333 mhz.

can i go to this memory ? http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... or this one ? http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...


the last two are both pc 12800, one is cl 7 and the other 9. my mobo says it can go to 1600mhz(OC) but these wont be over clocked....


so im not too sure what to do.

None of those links work...

Here are two in stock options: G.Skill Ripjaws 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $132.49 (with shipping) or Corsair 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $149.49 (with shipping) - 25 USD rebate. Either of those would be perfect.

EDIT: My links might not be working either. It seems to be a bigger problem. I found that reloading the page allows you to look at one of them...

ya i think its a problem with newegg.ca it was doing this last night to me. thanks for the reply, so basically i can go to the 1600mhz and it will be fine on my msi 870A-G54. the specs say Memory Standard DDR3 800/1066/1333/1600 (OC)

that was my confusion the OC beside 1600


edit: system specs will be a

CPU - AMD 955 HDZ955FBGMBOX
MOBO - MSI 870A-G54
ram - tbd

i wont bother with links, they seem to not be working as we have discovered

The OC means that you have to overclock the CPU to get those speeds. I don't know how much you were looking to spend, but MSI isn't the highest quality board brand. I'd check out a Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 (no Crossfire) or GA-790XTA-UD4 (Crossfire) for a couple of the best boards out there.

Well i was looking to not spend alot of money, not crossfire and not to overclock.

what kind of performance difference would i see from a msi 870 to a gigabyte 770 is any at all?

the video card would be a 5850 (already have and love)

I was eying that msi 870 because it was cheap and i was under the impression of getting the new 8 series boards

I should point out that the GA-770TA-UD3 is basically the same price, including shipping and the rebate. It's higher quality, so I'd definitely recommend switching to it. It's also got more slots, so it's better for expanding later.

The 8xx boards aren't that much better than the older 7xx boards. The only major differences is the ability to drop in the X6 CPUs without a BIOS update (which may or may already be included in the older boards) and the full USB 3/SATA III support. The older boards will have support for the newer devices, but not all of the ports are USB 3/SATA III, just some of them.

Basically, there isn't a whole lot of good reasons to pay more for a 8xx board. You should save the extra money (or in this case, get the higher quality).

That makes sense. i Do not plan on getting a x6 anyways. If i was to get new parts a few years down the road i will probably just buy a new pc and sell the old ones.

I dont plan on overclocking (maybe down the road) so i have to stick to 1333 and 1066 memory? and i guess ill go with the GIGABYTE GA-770TA-UD3 as it seems to have everything i want.

thanks for the help so far I'm learning quite a bit that i was not able to find out without asking. ill go see what memory i can get in 1333 or 1066

You don't have to stick to those speeds. Just the RAM won't necessarily run at the stated specs. Also, it wouldn't be much of an overclock to reach the 1600 mhz.

If you do decide to get the slower sticks, look for some 1333 mhz CL 7 ones. The CL is more important than the speed, so you want to make sure you're getting that as low as possible.

ok, i think newegg just put the g.skill memory with 1333 and 7cl back up. so i guess i should grab it eh? haha

edit: just to double check.

MOBO - GIGABYTE GA-770TA-UD3 AM3 AMD 770 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
