Ok i've been saving for this for ages and Hallelujah the day has almost arrived when i can get my new cpu, mobo and ram upgrade. Right well i'm going to get an x6800 and i think a p5w dh deluxe but i'm not sure what ram to get. My question is am i better to get a specific speed/timings/make of ram for the cpu i'll have? Is there a speed of ram which works better with the x6800? I was looking through an overclocking article in Toms Hardware and it said their that ddr2 pc2-6400 800mhz is the best memory for a e6300 and e6400 but it doesn't say what works best on a x6800. That's the memory i was going to get. Either the G.skill ddr2 pc2-6400 800mhz 4-4-4-12 or the Geil ddr2 pc2-6400 800mhz 4-4-4-12. I was also considering the G.Skill ddr2 pc2-6400 800mhz 3-4-3-8 and the Geil ddr2 pc2-6400 800mhz 3-3-3-8 or even the Corsair Dominator smae speeds with the timings 3-4-3-9. But the memory with the faster timings is so much more expensive and i have to say VERY hard to find here in the UK from ANY online store. But is there one kind which will work best? I'm open to considering ANY memory at all and any advice i get here will deffinitley influence which way i'm going to go. thanks very much everyone and Happy New Year to all also. Max.
