I'll be using the Gigabyte GA X58A UD3R mobo and maxing the RAM out at 12GBs with the i7 930 CPU. Not overclocking at first but as I learn more I might consider overclocking. From what I have read it is not that difficult and I am already getting the Hyper 212 plus cooler to instal from the get go.
I was going to use the G Skill (3x2gb) set here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231247&cm_re=G.SKILL_6GB_%283_x_2 GB%29_240-Pin_DDR3_SDRAM_DDR3_1600-_-20-231-247-_-Product with a 8-8-8-21 timing and Cas latency of 8. Then I saw this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231335&cm_re=G.SKILL_6GB_%283_x_2 GB%29_240-Pin_DDR3_SDRAM_DDR3_1600-_-20-231-335-_-Product with a timing of 7-8-7-24 and a Cas latency of 7 for $10 more (per set). Which one is the best choice for LR3, PSCS5 and some light Premire Elements 8 video work (or is there not much difference)?
The difference will be almost unnoticeable. Both are good.
