Hello everyone,

I was looking for some new Ram and I came across many choices.
So I narrowed down to ram that is compatible with my system, but even then the price ranges from 29euro til 89euro. what determines these big differences in price?

my system:
Asus P8z77-v pro

this supports:
- Dual channel
- 1600Mhz
- 16GB
- 1,5V

Looking forward too your answers.

hello... sales, availability, rebates, timings, speed, voltage, heatsinks, chips used, channels, sticks used, warranty, and packaging... Do you have a list of RAM narrowed down? or price point?

Quoting intel4eva from another post:

IMO priorities for RAM are as follows

1. max out all slots
2. max capacity
3. min latency
4. frequency

I agree with his opinion.

Also, your mobo will support up to 1600. That doesn't mean you need to get 1600. If budget is an issue, you could ook at 1333 also. The difference is minimal!
