My System Specs

Default Folding Rig RAM Choice

Hey Everyone,

So I am doing an AMD Build for a Pure Folding Box (still about 2-4 weeks off probably from being completed).
Originally, I had picked out some Corsair RAM like I always do and called it a day.
In the Interest of trying something new though, and breaking the mold I wanted some suggestions on a different Vendor Of Ram.

http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/...ProductID=2758

That is the Board it Will be going in.
The CPU so far is going to be an AM3 X4 810 Phenom II.
It can Handle up to 1066 (1200 with OC I Believe), DDR2 Dual Channel.

So, to my fellow HWC'ers. What other Types of RAM Do you Suggest?
I'd love to know what kind of MUSHKINs, or G. Skill, or anything else for that matter.
Just needs to be Solid and Reliable, nothing too too fancy.
2x2 GB kits would be better so I'm not so hard on the Chipset.

Thanks in advance everyone,

ST

G.Skills are perfectly acceptable and work great.

And usually cheaper than the Munchkins.

Mushkin has been great for me. The G-Skills are good too I hear, but have not tried. There is also a Mushkin rep hanging out here from time to time (MuskinNick).

Right on, I will look at them all and hopefully find a good set for cheap.
I figured it was time to break the mold a little.
I've used Corsair for so long now, I am too bias LOL.

Change is good,

ST
