I am looking for memory for this CPU/Motherboard combination:CPU
:Intel Six-Core i7-3930K Motherboard
:Asus P9X79 WS Graphic Card
:HIS X AMD 7970 (It's HUGE and it supports up to 6 monitors!)Memory
Tentatively, I have chosen 64 GB of this memory
. But the newegg page now says it's for Z77, and I'm buying an X79 based motherboard.
I'll be using the system as a DAW with (potentially) a lot of sound samples loaded into memory at a time. I'm also a bit of a geek, hence the choice of 64 GB RAM. Some games, some animation, office software and web editing; none of those will need that much memory. The system will be running Win 8 64 Bit, and with the exception of a few ancient VST instrument titles, all of my DAW software is 64 bit compliant, too.
I need some help choosing memory. I'd like good performance, and I'd like to keep it to $350 or less for 64 GB.
