    I am upgrading to a 2600k & P8P67 Evo, placing the order tomorrow...
    I game 95% of the time (Black Ops and other FPS).

    I was going to pick up this ram G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500). However I am not entirely sure if I really need 8GB or what speed Ram to choose... Memory is not a known subject for me.

    What ram will best suit my situation.. P8P67 mobo + 2600k @ 4.5ghz daily.
    mobo notes...
    G-Skill has always been good to me and never had issues..

    -What speed?
    -What timings?

    CL7 twin stick of 8Gigs for $80 almost sounds too good to be true. Even if you never see any noticeable improvements with 8Gigs in games for $80 it's one heck of a deal. But this is 1066Mhz ram if anything get 1333MHz ram at CL7 IMO.

    I agree there... I do some 3d modeling in Catia V5 and Solid Works 2007. Not installed on this PC right now, but it may in the future... I know 8gb would be sufficient...

    Just trying to figure out the best route now..

    biting the bullet and going with

    G.SKILL ECO Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBECO



    Timing 7-8-7-24-2N

    I can add another 2x2gb later if I need it for 3d Modeling.
