  • New memory for my folder (future proof)

    I'm looking for some memory that will be able to clock at least to 1600 (hopefully higher), but will also have the lowest latency possible at 1600 &/or 1333. I currently have an intel i7 930 @ 3.8 GHz with a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R motherboard and 3x 2GB of GeIL 1333 (9-9-9-24, iirc) @ 1033 or so.
    I plan on upgrading my system in the future and I will be using the RAM that I purchase now for that build (a 4P, AMD G34 server system, most likely). I will be building this system in a year or two. I know that the memory for it can only run at 1333/1600 max (depending on CPU), so that's why I want the lowest latency that I can get at those speeds (I've seen people running anywhere from 6 to 9, I'd prefer <=7).
    The main thing that I do with my computer(s) is Folding @ home. I don't game.
    Here is what I am looking at, but I'm open to other suggestions. I've only really looked on newegg thus far.

    i think the mushkin are your best bet,could go gskill but mushkin would do tighter timings provided you upped the qpi/vtt voltage
