So I'm building a new system and I have so far chosen the Intel i5 750 cpu and the Asus P7P55D-E EVO motherboard but I don't know what RAM to choose. I want to have good overclocking room with the memory and I plan to buy an 2 x 2048 mb kit but I don't know which one. Also the motherboards manual say's that if I plan to use memory with more than 1333 clock I need to activate a feature on my mobo.

Here's a list of what I have been having in mind to buy http://tinyurl.com/6flnqxf

Also tell me other memory modules that would be good to buy

I had in mind of buying either the Apacer 1600 mhz or the Apacer Giant II 2000 mhz but what the mobo's manual said got me a bit worried because I couldn't find those memories in the compatibility list.

don't consider budget.

Thank you in advance!!!

Any reason you chose the older i5 platform and not the newer i5 platform?

you mean the 1136? if you mean that then it was because of money and it wouldn't support the i5 750 but something tells me u are not speaking about the 1136...

I'm talking about your processor AND motherboard. Why did you choose the older 1156 over the new 1155?

^+1 Sugestion Yeah go LGA 1155 with P67 + i7-2600K (4 core +4 HT) or i5-2500K (4 core); 2500K is a perfect Gaming CPU Hyper-Threading does zip for Gaming, but if you Multi-Task or use Apps that can use HT then the i7-2600K.

Suggestion - I would look at a 2 X 4GB Kit if using 64-bit OS, RAM has gotten cheap and Bloatware only bigger. In gaming there's an advantage to 8GB vs 4GB http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ram-memory-upgrade,...
