Well, what's your price limit? How many Gigs you want?
Was thinking 16gigs, don't see why I would need more than 8 but want a little overkill just in case I need it later on. As for the money, I don't want to go much over 1500 bucks. Thanks for taking the time to respond. It's appreciated.
You're welcome! Hope you find what you're looking for! I've actually seen benchmarks that show CAS 9 RAM does pretty close to CAS 8 Ram... so, GSkill ripjaws might be a good cheap route for you. but CAS 8 Latency is far better for AMD systems!
