Hi,

I am building a new PC with a Asus P5E3 Deluxe wifi-ap board. I have a Intel E8500, ATI 4870 video card, Creative blaster fatality, and a WD velociraptor HD. I will be running vista 64 bit and want to buy 8 GB of ram. Asus webiste does not make a clear choice for 2GB sticks. Can anyone recomend good memory resonably priced? I like Corsair memory and purchase from newegg mainly. I think either the 1066 or 1333 Mhz will do me just fine. If you have this motherboard with memory that works, could you please post it?

Thanks in advance,
John

I would like to stick to $4-500 max. Cheaper is better, but I think speed dictates price and 1066 or 1333 is good enough.

Thanks,
John

Thanks for recomendation. I have never heard of this brand before. You are sure it will work with the Asus motherboard? If so, I will order it tonight.

Thanks,
John

its not the name brand that is compatible with a board, at least for ram, hard drive, optical drives and power supplies, single gpu cards will work with all motherboards, multi gpu configurations have to be supported by the motherboard.

i've personally never heard anything bad about g.skill.

Brand names, believe it or not, can be problematic for specific brand names of motherboards. The G.Skill has been known to cause some issues with the 780i/790i mobo's more so than with other chipsets/manufacturers. Although, I have a 4Gb kit on my 780i with no problems. You just have to research it.

I keep a pretty close ear in the realm of compatibility for components. As far as I know, the G.Skill hasn't been problematic for the P5E3.
