Welcome all options open in DDR3 1333MHz or 1600MHz if you are planning overclock! Budget, size in GB?
I have no plans to overclock since I have no experience with it. I'm looking at G-Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) from NewEgg (Canada) @$82.50 + $10 shipping (Cdn $)
That is one of the most recommended modules and should work fine.
gskill make good stuff at a good price. go for it. Honestly the difference in memory speeds make very little difference in overall performance. you may gain .2 fps from 800mhz - 1333mhz memory. You also dont need higher mhz memory if you overclock, although it does make it more foolproof if you dont know what your doing. Its easy enough to change the memory ratio to unlinked and set it to whatever you want.
Thanks for the confirmation that I'm on the right track guys. At my age (70) it is more and more difficult to stay on top of new developments! My first microcomputer had 8 kb of rem and a tape recorder for input!
