Hi there

Want to get a sandy bridhe 2600...however I dont know which RAM to get? In australia no one is selling the dedicated 1155 RAM eg G.skill etc, so, I am wondering, is it OK to getnormal RAM and not that dedicated to SB? eg 8GB 1333 DDR3 RAM?

thanks in advance

I don't think it uses special RAM, so normal DDR3 should be fine.
