Hey I want to buy memory for my Asus P7H55-M w/ Core i5 760 (4 x 2.8GHz). Can I use this kind of memory? Patriot Memory 'Sector 5' G Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz CAS 9-9-9-24 Enhanced Latency Dual Channel Kit PGV34G1600ELK

Here is the link http://www.amazon.co...K/dp/B002MVACT4

It says its for Intel P55 chipset but I don't know what that is. ]

Thanks!

Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system.
You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.

Sorry I should have been more specific. I'm building a system, and don't have the motherboard yet. It's coming and I wanted to get the Ram to match. It's an Asus P7H55-M w/ Core i5 760 (4 x 2.8GHz).

Ok so the memory page says its for Intel P55 chipset but I don't know what that is. Does that mean I could use the above linked ram on that motherboard?

Yes that memory should work with no problem.
The P55 chipset is the main chip on the motherboard that supports the I5 and I7 cpus. The memory you are asking about is specifically designed to work with that chipset.

Delta is in the Tier 5 category of PSU's which means it is a good one.
Check to make sure you will have enough connectors for the present and any future upgrades you may do.
