Hello,
I want to assemble a top performance i7 core computer with Abit or ASUS motherboards and 8 GB of Ram with the latest i7 core technology. What specifications do you suggest?

I agree, you only need 6GB, and with the i7-930, you'll get Triple Channel instead of Dual Channel.

What else do you need/are you looking for?

For motherboard,

But i like this one better from Gigabyte:

A bit more expensive though.
8GB of RAM is bit too much, 6GB is fine. Get GSkill CL6 RAM's.

What have you decided till now? And your budget?


Hi. Thank you very much for the suggestion. I have decided on Aus 6ptse or Rampage III, 6 GB of corsair dominator GT ram, i7 core 930, 1 TB Hitachi HDD 64 MB, Pioneer DVD-RW, Asus 5750 formula 1GB VGA, and Creative fatality Sound Card.
All the best wishes

The Asus p7p55d-e pro is a P55 chipset for the LGA 1156 socket CPUs. The i7-930 is part of the highest end series of i7s that uses the LGA 1366 socket and the X58 chipset.

That is on a different platform. Wont work for you. I agree with batuchka. All the works and a puny GPU. You wont be gaming or what?

When you are searching in newegg... look for X58 boards only. They are the one's you need.

Somehow in recent times Gigabyte boards have come up with better boards than the rest... i feel!

I do not agree with Gigabyte products. I have tested many of them. My friends did too. They are almost all fake products. The life time is too short as well. They are not worth the money you pay on them. To me and many of my friends it seems that ASUS and Abit are the most reliable and economical choices to make. MSI VGA cards are not bad either. However if one likes to go for MSI mainboards, he should make sure that the chassis has a large volume and there is enough cooling and fans
