Re: CYBER Monday

That's if it works with your motherboard. lol

I remember I bought some GSkill RAM when I first put my system together and I was having a hard time running any games.... I was being told that there was a video card issue... I tried to change my PSU (as I assumed it wasn't enough wattage) only to FINALLY find out after 2 years that my RAM was slightly out of sync causing the video card problems.

Was that with a recent board and DDR3 memory?

Every manufacturer releases a list of memory compatible with their products. It sucks buying memory that's not compatible, but at least now you know that a little research can prevent a ton of anguish.

It was back in 2008/2009 so no.

McBrain... I didn't know that back when I made the system (it was my first attempt lol)
