Hello,looking a new making new system built on the Asus Sabretooth X58 mobo. It'll have an i7 cpu,8gigs ddr3 ram, 2 hd's, 2dvd drives, etc, etc,etc. I am presently running 2gigs OCZ ddr2 ram on the Asus P5dw2. OCZ isn't in the Ram business any more, so who do I run with. I'm seeing crazy ram prices like 12gigs for less than 100.00US???? Corsair????? Who's the best of the best or second best??? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

A P67 motherboard with an i5 2500k will be cheaper, and faster.
All the ram which runs at 1600 mhz and below are the same. Any differences will only be seen in specific benchmarks. Save some money and buy from whichever is on sale.

I know in the DDR1 and DDR2 days Micron made some of the best ram. Sticks with the D9s were outstanding.

As Stingstang implied, few companies actually make the chips. Most of the ram chips themselves are made at only a few factories with other people just slapping their label on the stick. As sting said its just all the same. (more or less) Kingston, Corsair, Crucial, etc all "make" good sticks. My personal favorite is G.Skill though not everyone is a fan. I can't really think of any that I would stay away from no matter what. (except for maybe OCZ due to hearing a lot about compatibility issues.)

Triple channel motherboard, 8 doesn't divide well by 3, you're going to want to go with 6 ( 3x2 ) or 12 ( 3x4 ) gigs
Corsair, Crucial, Gskill or Kingston, all decent

There is an article out that claims to represent reliability of components, based on samplings from a single e-tailer, with no hard data other "than there were this many returns".
Don't allow yourself to be swayed by it.

I have bought several packages of G-Skill (both DDR2 and DDR3) recently. I agree with your assessment.
