    What you showed me was 888-24 above?

    Same thoughts apply to OCZ from me, they at least simply ignored my emails instead of playing games though :)

    Ya the 888-24 will likely do 777-20 as I do believe they are HCF0 chips in there, same as what is in the Crucial I reviewed.

    Yeah thats ok man. Oh yeah the OCZ is 888-24. But I just liked the look of it and I would have got it just to make you happy because noone should have to put up with companies being rude and unhelpful. Basically Muskin would be the best stuff to get?

    I really don't want to sway your choice based on my bad feelings, it would be unfair to you and xx company. I already feel bad often when I have to suggest memory, just because I may be biased for obvious reasons, but you now know why.

    Yes well. I did go with the Pretty Nice and Cool G'Skill 1066 DDR2 for the Q but am yet to actaully get it stable @ 1066 (possible chipset issue). All I can say is the corsair is the "Fastest" timed ram I can find @ 1600Mhz available at a less then overley expensive price. So untill I can find better (I like the look of the OCZ) I think corsair is gunna be the go. As along as the Shop I buy it off does what they should with the warranty I wont need to talk to corsair so if they dont wanna be nice It shouldnt worry me. IDK. I think at this point I definatly know 3 things.
    1) Intel Core I7 920
    2) Corsair CMPSU-850HX PSU
    3) Gigabyte Motherboard UD5/UD7a

    Dont worry about swaying me. I am simply asking for advice and all answers will be considered apon before a final decision will be made. Im thinking HD5850/5870

    Sounds like a plan, you have plenty of time to decide for sure anyway.

    Just be sure you look up some reviews on the kit/kits you are thinking of getting.

    On the Gigabyte Boards are RAM Slots 1,3,5 the white ones? I have been thinking and just wonder if that Corsair Dominator Ram will get in the way of the NH-U12P Cooler, it would have to come close?? But if like that some other boards its actually the white slots then should be right.

    Ya the X58 boards white slots are 1, 3, 5 Labeled, they are physically 2, 4, 6 from the CPU though, funky to make them like that!

    It gets worse with P55 too, they are labeled in this order 2, 1, 4, 3 with physical slot 2 being labeled 1 and physical slot 4 being labeled 3. Needless to say this has confused me very much when trying to help others. Keeping track of who says what and if they mean physical or labeled is very frustrating
