I'm looking at purchasing memory for my system. I have all the specs setup here on the site so you can check them out. My mobo/cpu are able to handle up to 1866 speed so that's what I've been looking at. The first thing I spotted was this: Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL10D-16GBXL
anybody have any other suggestions? I'm willing to spend $100-120, and I use my system primarily for gaming (including recording), video editing, and photo editing.
edit: I also saw in the feedback that someone had a similar mobo to mine, the intel version I believe and said they were having issues setting the memory I posted to max speed. Apparently you have to manually set the speed within the BIOS. Good, bad, thoughts?
edit2: Good thing I looked around for a bit. I found these which lower profile, same performance, and cheaper than the last ones I looked it. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231560
I don't see any difference otherwise.
