As for memory...

Don't think different brands have too much different in terms of performance, so may be go for one that with low timing at a low cost (i.e. Patriot Viper 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C7 1600MHz at £70.50)?

However would avoid the OCZ Gold though, as lots of people seem to get them DOA quite frequently.

If it was me, I'd just go for the Gigabyte, and save the £65 toward the next GFX upgrade :D

Damn it in just under 2 hours the ram I specced has gone up £10 :eek: Still think its worth it because of the timings :)

The gigabyte GX board is a good spec and cheaper than the FX board I linked to
