Hello all fellow members!

After posting in the System & Rig section of the forum, I'm close to buy the remaining parts for my AM3 setup which will mainly be for gaming and a bit of 3D. (http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=128819)

Sadly, I'm a nvidia fan and will go for the gtx460 SLI in a near future, but anyway here are the main parts and the source of my problem:

MOBO = http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131636
CPU = http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103851

Now I'm trying to find a compatible ram that will not BSOD on boot. I read the QVL of the mobo, but it looks quite... empty or just that no one really cares about that mobo anyway :rolleyes:

So I was looking for a low c 1600 RAM. The cheapest around http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277 seems fine but I wondered how low will I be able to drop them and or if if there are any better choice around that price?

Oh, another thing, the mobo works around a 2000 OC/1333/1033... noob question, will the 1600 be able to run at such freq. or is it just a UP TO 2000 OC thingy?

Thx again guys,
