Windows 7: Memory (RAM) - Need to replace, got a few questions.

Memory (RAM) - Need to replace, got a few questions.

I've currently got 3x 2GB DDR3 G.Skill memory sticks.
They're faulty, and have been giving me BSODs.

What should I be looking into, and how do I know what will be compatible?
Would something like 2x Corsair Value Select 4GB 1600Mhz CL11 DDR3 1.5v RAM be compatible with my current components (look at my system specs).

First thing to do is check the Gigabyte memory compatibility list for your motherboard.

I have had problems with G. Skill memory too and no longer use it.

I would avoid "Value" line memory (Kingston also has a Value line and its junk).

I used to have the same 1st gen Intel cpu as in your spec - it's a triple channel chip, so I'd say get a 3 pack of matched RAM sticks to get the most out of your system.

I didn't see it but go to the memory support list if you can find it here,
GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1366 - GA-EX58-UD5 (rev. 1.0)
Okay go to support and downloads section.

I saw the spec's on the link but didn't want to download the pdf to see the rest of the memory support stuff.
