Hello, guys.. I would like some input, recommendations etc on the type of ram that i have chosen. My mother board is a " Dual Channel Type). I would like to know which stick of ram i can use for it. I choose Corsair because I like the look of their sticks. Is G-Skill better???
2 2-4GB= 8gigs of ram Dual Channel kits?? like the link I am showing here or
4: 2-4gb= 16gigs of ram Quad Channel kit?
So my question is, Does my ram actually have to be "Dual Channel" meaning the Quad Channel Ram won't fit.
I use 16 gb. The motherboard determines what speed the ram runs in; just match the ram in pairs. I bought two 8 gb kits for a total of 16 gb. Get the stuff on sale with rebates. I got 8 gb of patriot gamers for $23.50 after rebate, and the 16 gb for $70, which is gskill ripjaws. 16 gb is good for video work, but don't spend too much. Microcenter in stores only has the best deal right now for 8 gb of patriot 1333; it's only $9.99 after $25 rebate.
