Hey Trung, didn't realise you were a chosen one (aussie)...

The color of the heat spreader gives it away. Black=Micron D9's The part number will also end in HZ on the D9 models.
There is only one that ends with HZ from http://umart.net/au and thats the link you gave me...not too many to choose from

Choose the G.Skill http://umart.net/au/product_info.php?cPath=92_258&products_id=108035 or

Anyway, the price WILL be cheaper when you order. With the motherboard though... I would buy a Gigabyte GA-P35 DS3P or Gigabyte GA N650 SLI DS4 (<Can do 500mhz NB with stock volts....talk about insane) instead... yes the P5WDH Deluxe is a good board... but if you want to do any overclocking, these two that I just mentioned will simplify it.

I'm building a new rig but not sure which memory will run good with my crossfire setup of my GPUs.

Specs
Intel E6600 2.4ghz
Asus P5W DH Deluxe
Antec Trupower Quattro 850 watt
2x Asus Hd 2900XT 512mb
2x 250GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 16mb

I was thinking of getting the OCZ ati crossfire edition 2x1024 kit but not many stores have it in stock...hence this thread, can anyone suggest any other possible memory that will go good with this system setup??
I have 2GB of the CrossFire Edition OCZ. It doesnt make any difference (Im not running 2 cards anyway) but the RAM is very nice and good for overclocking also ;)

Yeah i got the p5w so i'm gonna have to do without the new p35 chipsets....but my opinion i wouldnt buy the new p35 mobos coz there so new...i'd look around the corner before firing in figuratively speaking lol

You just stumbled into one of the few areas that I have little experience in. lol. I don't use on-board sound in any of my builds. If you have pics of your front panel cable, and a link to your mobo manual, I may be able to help, however.
