    Default Help me buy the right G.Skills (GIGABYTE MOBO)

    Hi guys!

    I want to upgrade my PC and I think I will go to Gigabyte for the motherboard. I am interested in one of those :
    Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD7-B3
    Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD5-B3
    Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4-B3
    Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3-B3


    I am also a huge fan of G.Skill memory and of course I want to buy a RipjawsX kit @ 1600MHz DDR3. I wanna go to 32GB (cause I am studying for MCITP, so I want to create a lot of VMs)

    I checked the G.Skill site and I saw a lot of Ripjaws supporting those motherboards.

    Can you please help me choose the right ones ?

    I would be very grateful!

    -why would you want to get Z68 when Z77 is already out ??
    -what type of RAM ..benching ,frequency or you just want to populate all slots ? ..i would get higher frequency for two reasons (if you want to run 16gb + you may have to loosen up your timings/frequency and higher frequency is future proof )

    Hackintosh IS already supported and working fine in Gigabyte Z77 boards - So I'd grab Z77 instead if I were you!

    Either of these motherboards will support Ivy Bridge right? So, I think I'm gonna stick with Z68 motherboard which is cheaper here in Greece (from the Z77 mobos) and it has great support in "Hackintosh Community".

    So, back to the memory issue. Which G.Skill 1600MHz DDR3 Ripjaws 32GB memory modules should I buy?

    Please help me, I want to buy them ASAP.

    Thanks guys!
