    Default 790XT-ud4p build. Everything compatible?

    Sapphire 4890 1gb
    PC Po Building a rig for my brother. I think everything should be compatible, but want to double check. Anybody know if there are any issues? Ram is listed on gigabytes site as being compatible, but there are complaints it doesn't run at listed timings w/o bsods. Any opinions or recommendations on something else? Ideally I'd like 6 gigs of ram, but can't find a listed kit.

    Phenom II 955
    GIGABYTE GA-MA790XT-UD4P
    G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
    Sapphire 4890 1gb
    PC Power & Cooling Silencer (Quad) 750
    Western Digital 1t Black Edition
    LG 22x DVD Burner
    Cooler Master 690 Case

    Thanks

    Virtually any DDR3 3 stick kit should work and give you 6GB RAM, however it's not listing 3 stick compatibility as the board doesn't support triple channel. 6GB isn't really needed anyway unless you're into photo/video/audio edition.

    A comparable E0 stepping Intel Quad Core and a UD3P or UD3R would likely give more performance when overclocked, but then I'm not a fan of Phenom/Phenom II as they don't bring anything new to the table in the way of performance over an Intel system, and lag behind on overclocking. I havn't seen many Phenom II's running 4GHz at all, let alone on air cooling.

    Unless you are going to use a 64bit operating sytem then having 4Gb or over is a waste of time.
    With 32bit you will be lucky to get 3GB out of 4GB.
    With 6-8GB then only 4GB.

    Actually a 32bit system is limited to addressing 4GB of RAM, including any on the GFX card etc. 4GB, 6GB or 8 GB, the OS would see exactly the same amount (around 3-3.5GB).
