I am looking for some advice on what would be the best memory to run MIR. I'd like to squeeze 24 Gb on ram onto my P6T Deluxe mother board. (I am running an I7 920 processor)

I curently have two options:

G.Skill RipJaw 24GB DDR3 PC3-10666C9 1333MHz Triple channel Kit

or the more expensive:

Patriot Viper 2 Sector 7 24GB PC3-12800C9 1600Mhz Triple Channel Memory Kit.

Would the extra speed make much of a difference.

Also will either of these models of memory work in a P6T Deluxe mother board. (Not the V2 version of this mother board)

Any help would be really appreciated.

Many thanks

Chris

P.S. Absolutely fantastic news about the launch of the Vienna Dimension Brass. I've been waiting for years for something like this. Here is hoping you do the same for the strings and woodwind.

- Asus P6T Deluxe Intel X58 Chipset
- GSkill 24GB (6x4GB) DDR3 1333MHz Memory
- (Quad-Core)Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 920 @ 2.66GHz 8 MB cache LGA1366
- WESTERN DIGITAL VelociRaptor 150GB SATA2 16MB WD1500HLFS and Samsung SpinPoint F1 HD103UJ 1TB Hard Drive SATAII
- PCI RME HDSP 9652, 3 x ADAT optical I/O

please note that an i7 920 will run at 1066 anyway - only i7 950 and above actually can run at 1333 - IF you put only 3 memory modules on the motherboard (3 x 8 GB). an i7 950 with 6 memory modules (6 x 4 GB) will throttle down to 1066 anyway.

and remember: a CRAY is the only computer that runs an endless loop in just four hours ...
