Windows 7: Best RAM for Asus Motherboard P7P55D

I would think the game would run just fine with 4 GB of memory, assuming the cpu and gpu were well above minimum requirements. So, given that, I'd go for a 2x4 GB kit for now. You can always add more later.

+1 Deacon Frost.

I went with 2x2GB when I assembled mine. Then added 2x2GB more.
I would go with 2x4GB if I were doing it again.

Also you do not go with Triple channel RAM with a Dual channel motherboard.

You buy 2 or 4 sticks of RAM. Matched sets placed together.

So 2 sets of 2x2GB or 2x4GB if you want 8GB total.

Dual-Channel DDR3 2200(O.C.) / 1600 / 1333 / 1066 support
The motherboard supports DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of 2200(O.C.) / 1600 /1333 / 1066 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The dual-channel DDR3 architecture enlarges the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance.
You do not go with three(3) sticks of RAM with a Dual channel motherboard.

You buy 2 or 4 sticks of RAM. Matched sets placed together.

So 2 sets of 2x2GB or 2x4GB if you want 8GB total

That looks better.

Perfect.
I double checked Corsair web site just now and it shows compatible with your mother board.

Enjoy.

Now you have to wait on the delivery man which always seems to take forever.

Thanks all

Luckily I have it on next day delivery.

This is going to be one expensive month, Battlefield, RAM, Skyrim...

I'm sure I'll get over the expense by not going out for the next 4 months due to extensive gaming!
