    SIW2: Again, thanks. I'd happily switch to a newer board with better facilities if I could find such a thing. But it'd need to support W7.

    Using the PCPP Builder 'Parametric Filter' I've already input your MOBO and CPU information, set Memory speed to 2666. Here are the results. Choosing a slightly faster memory speed will give you more purchase options, but as you were previously told, your MOBO will max out at 2666.

    Clicking the 'ADD' button on the ones with a price will show you where the sticks are available and how much you can expect to pay.

    Choose Memory - PCPartPicker

    Choose Your Parts - PCPartPicker

    Don't pay any attention to the warning there, it's for a BIOS update for the MOBO with that CPU.

    Hope this helps.

    BlueBonnett: Thanks for the link. Interesting. Is that a US or UK site?
    I assume US. That site was just to help you find compatible RAM for your system so you know what to look for on any site selling RAM. You don't have to specifically buy from them, but now you know whether you need DDR4 or 5, how many pins the stick should have and so on.

    Pharaoh suggested an even better site, though. I didn't know PCPartpicker had a custom builder page, that's neat.

    Thanks again, guys. BTW, what do you reckon the warranty should be on RAM?

    AmericanPharaoh: Thanks. I guess that should likely apply to most major brands.
    I ended up buying the 2x16GB Corsair Vengeance that SIW2 picked from my PBTech price list. Turned out they had a birthday special on so I got it for $NZ 122 - not a bad deal.
    Thanks everyone for your tips

    about 59 in real money. Sounds a good price.

    Yep, the price was good. After installing the ram the machine seem to be running a bit slow so I turned on XMP in the BIOS and it's now 100%.
