DDR3 SDRAM for LGA 2011: Which Memory Is Best?
As for memory itself, meh, buy the cheapest kit of reasonable quality and be done with it. Spending mad bucks on super-duper-OC-gamer edition RAM is a complete waste.
If I was a professional using heavily threaded media applications, I would not hesitate to buy the $500 rendition of those new chips.
But for my rig that does gaming/streaming/desktop app development and the odd video encode, a 2600K makes so much more sense.
It's a niche solution, and the X79 is particularly disappointing given its price.
