Hi All,

Been coming here for years, I think I may have posted one other time a very long time ago, but I always seem to find answers here. This time I am just looking for an opinion or two about the three components listed below before I pull the trigger on them to rebuild my aging gamer.


GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3 AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

Kingston 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

AMD Athlon II X3 445 Rana 3.1GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor ADX445WFGMBOX

I don't play things like Crysis just mostly race sims like GTR2, Rfactor and iRacing. This will be paired with an Asus EAH 4870 GFX card. Just looking for opinions and maybe a little reassurance that these things will work together ok. Been having more than my share of PC issues lately and, frankly, don't think I could take anymore without having a bit of an 'Episode' :) 

Thanks

Ok, why would you suggest DDR3 1333 memory? What would be my advantage over what I have in my list?

Thanks

DDR3-133 is faster if the latency is the same. I suggest CAS 7 latency DDR3-1600. You can generally find some on newegg around $95 for 2x2GB. Sorry I dont have time to look it up at the moment.
