Default Whats the best ram?

I need to get some ram since I am getting a mother board.

This is the specs on it:
Memory
Number of Memory Slots 4240pin
Memory Standard DDR3 2000(O.C)/1800(O.C)/1600(O.C)/1333/1066
Maximum Memory Supported 8GB
Channel Supported Dual Channel

Any suggestion at a good reasonable price? Try to keep the price below $200 and if possible around $100.

Thanks.

What CPU are you using and how much memory are you looking for?

G.Skill, OCZ, and Corsair are some of the top quality memory manufacturers.

8GB? What OS are you using and what are you planning on doing with the computer?

The sweet spot on a gaming machine with Vista is around 4GB - 6GB.

Here's a couple of suggestions:

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 - $59.99

OCZ 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 - $85.99 ($75.99 after $10.00 Mail-In Rebate) w/Free Shipping

Windows 7 is good. You can download the beta version and use it until June of next year. Then you can purchase it when it's officially released. It hear it runs as well as, if not better than Vista.

Windows 7 Release Candidate

Eh, just go for 8GB. RAM is so cheap nowadays. This should do you good. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220304 DDR3 RAM is as cheap if not cheaper than DDR2 for the most part now. The tech world is moving to DDR3.

He's talking about 8GB of RAM. Not an 8GB flash drive.

Unless if you are going to help the forum, get off.
