I need help selecting new ram

I was thinking of getting 8GB which is more than enough for what I will be using it for, I don't know what one of these 3 to get

The cheapest option would be to go with the G.Skill ares but I was wondering what would be the best option and would it work fine with my pc?

PC specs: Antec 300 case

Mobo taken from a Packard Bell ixtreme M5800 I don't really know anything about it. (I would get a new mobo but I don't really have the money for it as I would have to buy a new cpu as well)

Intel i5 650 3.2ghz

Asus GTX 550 ti

Samsung ddr3 (says 665x2 on CPU-Z, 1333mhz I guess) 1x2GB and 1x1GB

Antec 25 VP550P 550w

    None of them, As from what I can find your motherboard only supports 8gbs of ram in the configuration of 2gb per slot.

    Oh right, Would I be able to find a good 4x2GB 1333mhz set for around the same price or cheaper?


    Edit: http:// x2 = £52.98

    http:// x2 = £66.10

    http:// £66.48

    http:// £56.95 although I'm not sure if they're getting anymore in-stock

    Is there a difference between CL8 and CL9? and will I notice it for gaming,skype i.e anything a gamer would do?
  3. Can anyone tell me if there is a difference between CL8/9 and which is best for a gamers needs?
  4. Lower CL will let you access and read memory faster, but in the real world you will not see any difference between the two, and higher memory speeds 1600,1866,etc don't provide any benefit outside of benchmarking.

    Ok thanks! I guess I will get the ones in the first link as they are CL8 and roughly £15 cheaper.
