I know that DD3 is still somewhat expansive, but I think I found a good deal:
Patriot Viper 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail $369
I really want my comp to be somewhat "future proof" I know its a crazy word in today’s market, but still. If someone thinks I can get better deal plz let me know. Is this a good RAM? Will it @ good? I know that a lot of people will say get DDR2, and maybe u right, but i'm just trying to build a fast GAMING computer. I’ am willing to spend money If I know that the product is good (nothing 2 crazy plz like $800 DDR3 ram) also can someone plz explain to me what timing mean? (ex: 7-7-7-20) what do this numbers mean? is lower better? Also whats better (4G) 2G stick or (4G) 1G stick?
