Default Re: Final overview

I think the DS3R will get a better overclock, but it's not like the P6N is bad at overclocking. It's a great overclocker too. It's just a matter of what features you want, whether it be SLI or something else.

Crucial is equal or I think a little better than G. Skill. If it was me only, I'd go for the Crucial, because of the rebate deal.

Right now, a dual core is better than quad at gaming...but soon games will support more cores, so quad is more future proof.

Thanks, im almost ready to decide the final parts.

Im just deciding between the msi platinum and the ds3r and g.skill and crucial. I don't care about price or rebates, I just want the best ram for oc and gaming.

Any push in which direction to go is welcome.

You mentioned you wanted to keep SLI an option. In that case get the MSI Plat. I would also go with the Crucial for the deal or get this since money is not an option I've been reading some good things about the abilities of this RAM to OC:

Thanks, I probably will but just not sure yet. Is that still the best board for possible sli? On the other hand i've been reading that sli doesn't give much of an increase, so thats why im deciding between the ds3r too.

Only 2 drives will be in the raid0. The 3rd drive will hold all the important things.
