I need your help! I've been looking around on the forums for awhile now and I trust your opinions way more than my own. haha. So I was wondering if you all could help me out with some things here.
After watching Logan's Favorite Black Friday Deals video, I decided to finally get the AMD FX 8350 processor (I've been putting it off for quite some time). As of right now, I am also going to pick up the Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 Mobo and Newegg has some combo deals right now with 16GB RAM.
However, I suck at picking out RAM. I'm not really up-to-date anymore on what would be the best for my buck. I'm really wanting to stay with the AMD processor of course, since I just bought it. So Intel is kind of out the window for me. But, if you all have any recommendations on great Motherboards to go with it, as well as RAM, I would appreciate any feedback or information you can provide.
Thanks in advance!
AMD has their own line of ram that will work with their FX processor using their own version of XMP.
Also, if you don't like AMD's ram you can look at the QVL of the mobo itself here:
I'd recommend the M5A99FX PRO2.0 Best amd motherboard IMHO. I recommend any ram but Kingston, theyre customer service is fucking awful
For me these are the best ones you can save 30 bucks on any of theme
Thank you all for your recommendations! You all helped me feel secure with my purchase. I ended up going with the Sabertooth 990FX and the 16GB G. Skill Ripjaws. Can't wait to upgrade my rig!
You should be happy with those! G. Skill might be the best company there is with handling dead ram. If you burn it out years down the line, they'll replace it. And the sabertooth is just a given awesome purchase. Have fun!!!
I have the same motherboard and i use the same ram but the 2133 ones, if you need help overclocking it say something in the forum i'm sure i'm not the only one, it overclocks very good that board .Happy gaming Henjin
