Looking for some DDR3


    I'm soon to be putting together an i5 based computer. i5-750 chip and an lga1156 motherboard are on the way. Just need to get some ram now.

    when I search for ddr3, I keep finding deals (here and on price sites) for decent branded ram, 6GB, 1600mhz, but it seems I've missed the boat by about 3 Months.

    Now, the same stuff seems to cost about £160 ...What an increase!

    Now I'm not one to worry toooo much about brand. I might spend a few percent more for a good brand over unbranded - but I think, what's more important would be to get 1600mhz ddr3 (over 1333mhz) so I have a bit of room if I want to overclock the i5.

    The best I can find is "OCZ Gold DDR3 1600MHz PC3 12800 6GB OCZ3G1600LV6GK" on ebay for £129.99 delivered.

    Or perhaps "Kingston HyperX 1600MHz 6GB Kit DDR3 KHX1600C9D3K3/6​GX" also on ebay (but from the US) for £130.25 + whatever paypal's currency conversion charges are.

    After that, I've seen some kingston value ram for £111.73 + delivery on techstore, but it says available next week and it wouldn't surprise me if they chucked the price up before finalising order.

    Can anyone recommend anything else/better?

    Got 4GB of secondhand ocz for £65 in the end. Hopefully will be okay.
