    Default Ep45-ud3r ram

    Mobo: ep45-ud3r
    video: ati 4870x2
    cpu: q9550 quad

    I dont know that much about ram. Im wondering if this Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1200 (PC2 9600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-9600CL5D-4GBPI is appropriate or even necessary. I would be getting 8 Gb. If not pls recommend something for me.

    Are you going to overclock and what is your goal if you do?
    There is a 5GB kit of PC2-8800 for 70 bucks less Newegg.com - G.SKILL 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1100 (PC2 8800) Quad Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8800CL5Q-8GBPI

    I dont know that much about ocing anymore tbh lol. Ive been in the Air Force the past 8 months. The only thing I remembered to do was cpu and got my q9550 to 4 ghz. Wow didnt notice that 4 piece deal thx for pointing that out. If theres a better option period let me know I dont have to stick with g.skill.

    At least the 8GB is guaranteed to run at it's rated speed. Doesn't mean it will though there mat be compatibility issues, no GIGABYTE boared is listed as compatible.
    It may even be the same chips or even better just lower rated speed because of the greater capacity.
    Without OC the greatest speed you'll achive is 1066, I would think DDR-1100 is sufficient and flexible enough.
    What kind of cooling for the CPU and case?

    If you want 8GB and to run them at high speeds you best bet is to buy 800 or 1066 with good timings, no need for higher rated kits really as it will be hard to get that much stable at 1000+ anyway.

    mm well i run with Gskill 4 gb black pi 800mhz stuff at 1000.its very flexible it will run 900mhxz at 4-4-4-12 timings with pl 8 with lowish voltages all round.
    The board has a max rated 775 cpu speed of 4GHz tho u can get higherspeeds,you are still limited by chipset bandwith however.
    I have run 8 gb at 700mhz speed with 2 sticks of "666mhz value ram" and the gskills, 700mhz is the most the value ram will reach anyway used on its own.
    8gb of gskill you may not get quite as much performance from it as 4gb, but unless you are trying for absolute limits on your hardware,it should be fine.
