    Hi all. I am new to this forum, but have read some topics in the past.

    I recently put together a computer (intel i7 2700k, dh67cl, ea-650 psu, 1x4gb hynix 1333mhz ram card, etc) and was wondering if my ram configuration is decent. On intel's site, it doesn't mention having one 4gb card as a possible configuration. I don't want to damage anything, or reduce preformance. I am making music with this machine, and it isn't extremely ram hungry (but very processor hungry) so I purchased a cheap ram card. This may have been a mistake..
    Also, it looks like I won't be overclocking with this board..

    W1333UB4GH is the part number on the ram card

    And as a member with less than 20 posts, I am not allowed to post a link to the intel website that i am talking about, so I added the chart to the bottom

    Thanks

    Okay. You can never have too much memory. My suggestion to anyone is buy name brand quality ram, buy matching dimms (if you buy say, 2GB sticks make sure they're all identical 2GB sticks) with identical speeds from the same manufacturer. Computers aren't just a pile of parts. For best performance make sure all the parts match up to your motherboard specs and each other. A computer is only as good as it's weakest link and when it comes to parts, you only get what you pay for.......:cool:
