I have this Mushklin Redline RAM

I was going to get this EVGA Classified motherboard becaseu of its customer service, plus I heard this mobo worked very well with this RAM.

But then I saw this ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 on sale and thought about getting this one, but had no idea if the Mushkin RAM would work well with this or better than the Evga classy.

Any opinions or suggestions?

Thanks!

Because it said on the specifications that it accepted 1600 RAM at OC (overclocking). I was confused about that and didn't know if this RAM was acceptable in that ASUS board. I didn't know if having 1600 RAM was too much for this and I needed 1333 RAM instead to get 1600 OC. What would that mean for the 1600 RAM that I have?

Also is that ASUS board "noob-user" friendly, since I this is my first build in a very long time ;-)

So what if I over clock it on the ASUS? Would I get more out of the RAM on the EVGA board since it accepts 1600 without overclocking it?

Dude, that EVGA board is a waste of money. You might argue that you are not gonna go for a 3 way sli anyways, then why pay extra for the supposed privilege that you're never gonna exercise anyways !

Go with that Asus board. I use a rampage myself.

By the way, may I ask what are you building the system for? If it's for gaming, then 4 Gb is gonna be plenty for almost all games.

Will work perfectly. Yes, that's a lot of memory but I would feel absurd (I don't know why) if I got 3x1GB modules... here's a memory guide for more information if you need it.

Well it is for gaming, work (photoshop & web design) and videos (blu ray, divx, etc.). The RAM came highly recommended, especially on here and it is was on sale. Guess I over did it, huh? :-)


But i do want to have Eyefinity. I ordered an XFX HD 5870 and plan to get another one soon, if everything works out.

Everyone is talking about that Rampage 3....which one? That one seems expensive too...

You did'nt mention what processor you use / intend to use.

For professional video / photo editing, and multi tasking, a quality quad (depending on your budget) will help you more though than the low latency ram sticks.

You can keep the ram though. A bit of extra memory never hurt no one.

Most games don't yet have the ability to use 4 cores though. For gaming alone, you're better off using a new gen dual core where each core works faster than a PDC / C2D dual core.

I have this one. With the the now discontinued i7 920.

I had to pay ~ $300 though, here in India.

EDIT : - If you can afford it (seeing as you are using a 5870), that's gonna be your best all round option (for video / photo editing & gaming).

Actually I received the i7-930 as a birthday present, which is how I got started on building my rig :-)

So this Rampage 3 is the best option and not the Evga Classified e760?

But which Rampage 3? This one or this one

Well, let's look @ the pros & cons.

1. Mine has USB 3.0 support. The P6t does'nt.

2. The gene also has 6.0 Gb/s support. It'll support your barracuda, cavier black, spinpoints (you need that HDD for gaming). Unfortunately, the other one only does 3Gb/s.

3. The P6T is 45 bucks cheaper though.

Hang on... Hang on...

I thought you linked me to a P6T. So you must have edited that.

Go with the Gene --- from what you have said, does'nt seem like you'll be needing the Extreme. It's basically the same board anyways with a few more bells & whistles. The price / performance ratio just does'nt add up. Save the 130 bucks.

Btw - Did I mention the audio chipset? Whoh !!! Love the integrated X-Fi.
