    Hi Guys, thanks for reading

    I've decided to build a new PC, building it around a AMD Phenom II Dual Core 250 3.0GHz CPU using a GA-MA770T-UD3P motherboard
    (specs found here)http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=3096

    The motherboard supports DDR3, but with so many different modules out there and me not knowing a great deal about them, i was wondering what perhaps will work well this the AMD 770+ Chipset and my choice of CPU.

    I'm on a budget, although i know the price of these modules can be high, I would prefere to be making use of the 64bit capabilites so understand I need around 4gb, just not sure on the speeds, make, or other to go for.

    Thanks again,

    Have you looked at Gigabyte's recommended memory list: http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/FileList/MemorySupport/mb_memory_ga-ma770t-ud3p.pdf

    You can also go to most memory manufacturer's websites and see what memory they have tested and listed as compatible with the board ie: http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=GA-MA770T-UD3P (rev. 1.0)#

    The faster the memory speed the faster it can operate, although for the 1666Mhz you usually have to overclock and for 1333Mhz you have to manually set it to that speed or it'll run at 1066Mhz which is all you need for stock speeds if you don't plan to overclock the system.

    These should be okay. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227448 Decently low voltage need, fast, and affordable.
    But, yeah. It's a risk compared to the tested compatible choices. It's also slightly faster however(not really any real-life difference between the Crucial 1333 CL6 ones though)... Up to you, I'd try with the OCZs probably. If you want it trouble-free, go with some of the Crucial's list ones, or from Gigabyte list.
