I am a newbie here at this forum and I seriously need your help!
I currently own a Core 2 Quad System..
Here are its specs..
Core 2 Quad Q8400 2.66ghz 4mb Cache 1333mhz.
Corsair XMS2 DDR2 4gb 2x2g 1066mhz Running at 800mhz.
Seagate SATA 320GB
Sony DRU-870S Optical Drive
HIS Radeon HD 5770 IceQ5 Turbo Edition 1GB 128Bits.
Cooler Master 500W PSU.
All in a generic case!
So what I want is to upgrade my motherboard and my memory to a better one!
I had no other options instead of the ASUS P5G41T-M LX which supports DDR3 2x240 pin 1333(Oc'd)/1066/800 modules! Max 8GB
So I'm taking that mobo
As for the Memory, I've been a fan of corsair memories cuz of their performance and their looks!
I have a few memory options to choose from
P.S I want dual channel!
First of all the
CORSAIR VENGEANCE DDR3 4GB-2000 2GX2 (CMZ4GX3M2A2000C1) - this is the one I want.
CORSAIR VENGEANCE DDR3 4GB-1600 4GX1 (CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9) - i dont really want this
CORSAIR VENGEANCE DDR3 8GB-1600 4GX2 (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9) - Suits me would love to have this!
CORSAIR DOMINATOR DDR3 4GB-1600 2GX2 (CMP4GX3M2A1600C9) - Do tell me about this one too!
So there's the first part! Let me help decide what should I get!
Secondly will Memory with buses 1600 and 2000 work in ASUS P5G41T-M LX?
Based on your motherboard, I would suggest that you get a Vengeance 1333 kit or possibly a 1600 kit. Anything faster will not benefit you at all on that board. As for 4GB or 8GB, you need to decide that based on your own usage needs.
