Hi guys IM new to this fourm... I was with another forum not to long ago .... coph (ROG) and was treated like trash... so i left and came to you guys... I read alot of reviews from toms and enjoy them... toms hardware actually inspired me to build my own computer lol... anywayzzz

My problem is right now IM currently using G-Skill 2x2 C7 1600. but when ever I play battlefield 3 or crysis 2 (or any other graphic heavy game.) it ends up crashing...(other games my computer is fine...) n blue screen says its ran out of memory.. or along those lines... I want to upgrade my memory to 2x4 or to 2x8 and I read somewhere that Intel likes faster speeds rather than tighter timings... Is this true? mind you IM running 5760X1080P... when using only 1 screen IM fine...

My question to you geniuses is, should i go 2x4 or [2x8(for future) ] memory is really cheap right now so i don't mind getting sum so long as i don't run into this problem again... anytime soon anywayz...

my second question is, What kit do i get for my set up. any recommendations will be greatly appreciated....
