Solved [Memory] Help me decide, buying tonight. Tags: Memory Product Last response: December 17, 2012 9:04 PM in Memory Share KevinHamm December 17, 2012 5:49:01 PM Hello again people, thank you for checking my post. I've been upgrading my computer and before I go any further I will list my current specs. Case: Fractal Arc Midi PSU: Corsair HX 750W CPU: I5-3570k Mother Board: ASROCK Extreme4 Z77 full ATX Graphics: MSI HAWK 7870 Ram: 4GB GSKILL Windows 7 Ultimate x64 So with that being said I am in the market for new RAM. I'm going to go for 16GB and I think I've decided on 2x8 ((Please post if you think its worth getting 4x4)) I've been looking at Corsair Vengence and I've came across these two packs. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Now the first one I posted is on sale and cheaper at the moment and I can't decide between the two since the timing just seems werid to me on the first one 9-10-9-27 I don't know ANYTHING about RAM so I thought I would come here and get enlightened If you think I would be better off with another brand or whatever please post your recommendations for RAM money is not a issue but I'm not diving to corsair platinum for 300$ haha. Anyways thank you again!! More about : memory decide buying tonight Best solution austing December 17, 2012 7:25:40 PM Ram is like this. DDR3 <Revision speed 1066/1333/1600/1866/2000/2300 < mhz, the overall speed, kinda like GHz on a proc CAS 9-9-9-15 < Latency, the lower the number, the faster the data transfer. Mainstream memory example Stock memory: 4GB DDR3 1333 @ 9-9-9-15 Gaming memory 8GB DDR3 1600 @ 7-7-7-14 Hope it helps. Also, the Ripjaws X series is a good DDR3 kit.

Get the answer austing December 17, 2012 8:19:51 PM Based on budget, I'd recomend ANY of the following Corsair Dominator 1600/1866/2000 mhz Corsair Vengance 1600/1866/2000 mhz G.Skill Ripjaws 1600/1866/2000 mhz Patriot Viper 3 1600/1866/2000 mhz Really, any of these are the BEST that I know of.
