I am looking to build a new computer in the near future (in a months or so time). I have put together my list of components, but was hoping to get some help with selecting the memory. Here are the components i am thinking of buying:
Mobo: GA-X79-UD3 Intel X79
PSU: Thermaltake Smart Power Series - 750
CPU: Intel Core i7-3820 3.60GHz
GPU: Geforce GTX 560
RAM: G.Skill RipjawsZ 16GB
My question really is about the RAM, i have been doing some searching online and havent really been able to find any of the memory that is on the 'Supported Memory List' on Giga-Bytes website.
The memory i have chosen seems to be slow, or am i misunderstanding the timings?
The timings for this memory is 9-11-10-28 (PC3-17000)
The machine will be used for:
some video editing
But essentially it will be used for everyday computing, Word, Excel, Internet, watching films.....
i looked on Crucial.com/uk and the only memory they had for this machine was £400, RAM timings were 9-9-9-27 i really cannot afford that.
i'd really appreciate if someone could just have a quick look at the timings and tell me if these are considered to be fast or slow, i understand it may not be as straight forward as that, but some guidance or even if you could suggest something else would be very helpful.
