9NPA+sli - OCZ or G.Skill?

Hi folks!
A rookie that just joined here! I am in the process of starting my first build. I have all but decided on purchasing an Epox 9NPA+SLI 939 board. Have heard nothing but good things about this board. I know it is a 939 mobo and many will say it is not the newest/greatest, but performance wise just don't see a new AM2 build. Also, I have not been impressed with Intel's Core 2 Duo's inflated pricing and limited availability (another discussion). Back to the question at hand, what do you guys recommend for DDR memory for this board. It seems that the selection is starting to get limited as DDR is getting phased out. Probably will go ahead and get my epox board and memory before i buy the processor. OCZ recommended the Gold series (OCZ4002048ELGEGXTK) to me. Also the G.Skill (red ones) look good also. Both will be 2x1024 sticks. Thanks!

Thumbs up

The RAM I'm using right now in this slower mobo is OCZ Platinum Ed. DDR500, which I originally bought with the same EPoX board to build an Opty 170-based system. I paid around $300. for the 2GB then, but I've noticed it's down around the $200./pr. range now.

Right out of the package (w/o 'burn-in') I installed it in a friend's O165/DFI set-up, and it got up to 265 speeds with no problems. It'll take higher voltages without complaints, though I wanted to see if it would do DDR500 speeds in the EPoX board. Hopefully I will be getting another Opty & mobo soon to go along with this RAM, although I would like to try an Intel E6600.

G-Skill is also good stuff, but I haven't used any recently so I can't comment on it.

It will depend on exactly which RAM you buy as to what chips you actually get (Samsung, Infineon, etc.) But with OCZ it's all good!
