Hi, Can someone confirm if either of these 2 Memory will work on my Asus P8z68-V LE Motherboard?

1.Corsair Vengeance CML16GX3M4X1600C7 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3
2.Corsair Vengeance CML16GX3M4A1600C9B 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3

I Need good Ram for Painter, Gimp, Artrage software plus I was told to get a Low Latency Memory for Flight Simulator x. I'm using Win 7 Home Premium.

Cheers

Uly

Your motherboard has support for DDR3, so compatability isn't an issue.

Yes, both will do, but i rather get a dual channel kit with 16GB, you won't notice a performance difference with lower timings.

djangoringo - Do you mean 2 x 8Gb for example? and a timing of 10-10-10-27 compared to 7-8-8-24? I only ask because the Flight Sim X experts recommended a low Latency?

So maybe this Memory would be better?

I wouldn't say it's better, but it's probably cheaper and you'll not notice the performance difference(in reference to the timings).
Is this from newegg ?

Not from Newegg...from an Australian online line store where I buy my Hardware from. The 2x 8 GB is $99. the others in my list were $115 and $169.

Then get the dual channel kit at 99$, if you can't find one cheaper, get that one.

I got the 16 GB dual channel kit for $99. installed and working great :-) I noticed that with one of my digital paintings Gimp went straight to using more than 6 Gb of memory! No wonder I was having problems with only 4 GB of system memory before. So i'm glad I got the extra Memory :-)

Cheers & Thanks for your help :-)
