The title says it all. I'll be using it for video editing. I also had a conversation with someone else, but he didn't answer, you can read about it herehttp://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804195/newbie-z...

I haven't noticed much of a difference between my old 1600MHz RAM and my new 2400 MHz RAM. If you're doing video editing and using a program like After Effects, which can utilize all the RAM you'll give it, go with the 16 GB.

This as been asked a lot of times, and i still dont believe that the 2133 (pricey) ram is much faster than 1600, especially when you only get half the RAM.
I may not be the best person to advice, since i have not done my homework on 2133 ram, but if it were me i would go with 16gb.
Having 2x8gb and doing a ton of editing and modeling, i know how usefull it is.

for video editing, more is better, because it would use HDD or SSD next for temp space.

Brand is all personal preference, I highly recommend Corsair.

Well there you have it. You'll definitely have a good editing machine when you get it all assembled though, don't fold and buy something cheaper, it will be worth it later. You should select a best solution so you don't get more people in here giving you advice.
