RAM by Roy
Can you recommend what I should buy to give 16GB RAM? I've had problems in the past with mismatched RAM with same spec and dont want to repeat the experience.
Any two identical 8GB kits (http://goo.gl/YLRaV) or any one 16GB kit (http://goo.gl/4uiHo). The RAM can't be mismatched if you buy identical modules at the same time.

Thanks Aria by Muttley
I was in need of an upgrade, so I took the plunge and purchased one of these, it looks great and performs even better, only thing I had to do was set the time (I will be playing with the o/c when I have a little more time). there are no IDE slots but unless you have got an old DVD RW then it's not a problem, fits straight in a midi case (coolermaster, a little old now) without any problems, all in all I am really pleased with this board (it was hard to give up on ASUS but glad I did)278 of 571 people rated this review as helpful
