that mobo is tempting at 30 dollars cheaper than the asus i picked, but I like the idea of built in wifi.
IDK why you would ever use built in WiFi. That is VERY situational.
If you need it you need it, if you don't you don't Catch my drift?
I can't complain once about any ASRock board previously owned. I put them up there with ASUS, MSI and Intel boards.
I would either go with Samsung or Patriot RAM. Although RAM is RAM these days.
Truth RAM is RAM. Tests/studies have been done that anything after 1333mhz or 1600mhz there is virtually no performance increase (unless you are an extreme benchmarker). I have a pair of 4GB Samsung low profile in my home server. Great stuff.
In my gaming PC I have 16GB (4x4GB) Patriot Viper 3.
If I would give a hierarchy of RAM today listed by dependability it would follow as:
1. Samsung (30NM low profile)
2. Patriot (Any)
3. Kingston (Hyper-X)
4. G-Skill (Any)
5. Corsair (Had lots of trouble with OC'ing and boot problems w/ Vengeance RAM)
