Default Re: Mem for Asus Crossfire IV

Just buy RAM that you like. Their recommended list is just a list of modules they themselves have tested.

If you need 16GB of RAM, I want to know what you're doing, because even on my hex core system, I only need 8GB at most. That's with fully loaded Premiere encodes, and I play games too - SC2, Rift, Supreme Commander, and they barely go over 4GB.

Buying ahead of the curve is also a waste this early. 16GB won't be viable for at least another year.
