    Friend is upgrading...

    He's going from a Z68 board to a Z77 with a 2600K and also getting a SSD. What speed of memory should he look at?

    What is wrong with the memory he is currently using and why is he upgrading the motherboard?

    He's gotten BSOD a couple times and he's dead set on changing the mobo... There is no changing his mind so might as well help him.

    His current memory is some 1300mhz noname crap that the prebuild company slapped in there.

    So I guess you are replacing the memory as well? Just get a quality pair of 1600MHz sticks.

    Skars, what you linked is a single stick...

    Something like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231416 would work a bit better

    has your friend tried running memtest86+ and WhoCrashed? If not, he should before he goes throwing his money away.
