General rule for timings is lower the timings, faster the ram.
Get this ram: - G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
They have the best timings out of the ones you were showing.

Don't get the Asus P6T Deluxe, it has less features compared to the regular one for some reason. And it's more expensive: - ASUS P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards


Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
"Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll."

Default Sapphire 4870 1GB vs. Toxic 4870 1GB

Thanks for the help. I wonder if it would be worth paying a bit extra for the Toxic version of the Sapphire 4870 1GB? That's the card I decided on. Not a ton of price difference, plus I could wait a bit for the price to lower.


Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 1GB

i recommend the gigabyte or evga over those. I have never been much of an asus fan. evga is my favorite for their amazing support, and my evga x58 is awesome. steady as a rock and overclocks like a dream.
