I got these components for my new home built PC:
Intel Core i5 4570
MSI Z87-G43 Motherboard
HDD WD 10EZEX 64mb cache 1TB
PSU Cooler Master B500 (500W)
GPU MSI N650Ti 1GB GDDR5

I have a very limited RAM memory choice and money for it, so what do you recommend me to get:
Kingston HyperX Genesis 2GB X3 @1600Mhz (No XMP)
or
Kingston HyperX Beast 4GB X1 @1600Mhz (With Intel XMP)

The Genesis 2GB x3 is a cheaper choice here.

2GB x3 is for a triple channel mobo - this is a dual channel - if they run it will be with 4GB in DUAL and 2GB in single, putting additional stress on the MC (memory controller) and you don't want a single stick, don't waste your money - get a 2x2GB if you think 4GB will do you, (8GB is the accepted entry level) or go for a 2x4GB set even of 1333 is better than those you list, you won't be happy with them

I don't know much about "Patriot" memory but is this kit good ?
