This is my build so far:

Intel Core i7 2600k
ASUS Sabertooth P67
ASUS nVIDIA GTX 560 Ti
Crucial M4 64GB/128GB SSD (cannot decide)
Samsung 1TB 7200RPM Spinpoint F3
Corsair 850TX Enthusiast Series PSU
Sharkoon T9 ATX Value Case (has cables and stuff)
Thermalright HR-02 Macho (Fan for CPU)
Additional fan for Motherboard (has a place on it): Cooler Master Super Fan 80SU1
DVD-Writer (LG)

------------------------

Can I get a pair of dual channel 8GB RAM Memory that would be recommended for this build? I'm using this PC for intense video rendering/editing and 3d modeling. Also I must get them from Amazon.co.uk, a link would be useful. I thought of using these first, but they are usually dispatched in 1-2 months, lol. - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00569K7LM/ref=ox_sc...

Thanks,

hmm, amazing stuff but as my knowledge says do not go with 8gb of ram cause rendering,3d works,adobe basically requires more memory ram you should go for 16gb of ram with 2 sticks like 2x 8gb.

I can't afford 16GB. Just show me a good Dual 8GB DDR3 RAM Kit for my build.
edit: jaquith, the 4x4gb you showed me seems like a decent price, I may think again on that one.

RAM is very cheap and 'match'able' now, I'm just waiting for some crazy 'event' to make RAM expensive again like the Thailand floods for HDD's. IMO getting a fully matched set is the best way to go.

BTW - 4X8GB only a few months ago way $1,500~$2,000 USD or £900~£1,300+.
