I need 16gb of ram and my budget is $160 for the ram. I know I don't more than 8gb for gaming but i will be hosting servers, streaming, multitasking, and possibly video editing so yeaaa... what is the best?

My build if it helps:

I'd normally recommend GSkill Ripjaws 2133, but perhaps that would cost too much?

I like these .... designed and manufactured in US of A.

Getting very popular tho....newegg keeps running out

Mushkin and Patriot the most under estimated ram on the market. Do not have the Hype that G.Skill has.

I've had good results with Mushkin aswell, but the supply of them is very poor in
the UK, often only sold by Aria, and not reliably (buy one kit to fill half the slots,
might want to buy another kit later only to find it's not available anymore).

One of the earliest DDR3 kits I bought was a Mushkin Blackline DDR3/2000
2x2GB 7-10-8-27, ran very well with an i7 870 @ 4.27. Gave up trying to find
another though, ended up replacing it with 2x4GB Redline CL9.

GSkill seems to be more widely available, and they do work very well. Getting
32GB to run at 2133 with my 2700K was easy, ditto 64GB @ 2133 with a 3930K
(2400 TridentX kits in both cases; they were cheaper than 2133 kits at the time).
