Looking for an in-store Best Buy brand, or Staples, I suppose.
I'm not looking to OC, since I don't know how, and I don't think I'll be needing to.
Just some good RAM so my computer is up to speed with my demands.
Not looking for something CHEAP, but the best value. If it's more expensive, 8gb will have to be fine until I can afford to upgrade more.
Just really wanting to put this build to use.
I game (if you can call Sims 3 gaming ), and it's pretty demanding on graphics if you ask around, so bear that in mind, please.
Gaming, browsing the web. Not a whole lot video streaming, editing, etc.
Asus p8p67-m PRO is the motherboard, requires DDR3.
For value for money corsair XMS and for little better performance get corsair vengeance.
Corsair also gets my vote for RAM and other components.
But just know that BestBuy and Staples aren't the best place to shop for computer parts, they sometimes charge twice the price for some components, ok maybe not twice but I noticed that most of their computer upgrade parts are overpriced. It's better to go to a smaller store specialized in PC building or an online stores like newegg.com they have better prices.
