Which of the following two RAM kits would be a better buy for overclocking and speed. I will be doing gaming on ultra settings on games like arma 3 and bf4. So which of these would be better for me?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Crucial-BLT2CP8G3D1608DT1TX0CEU...
or would this be better...

No, you'd be surprised to know that RAM frequency does not matter much in gaming.
See this video link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWgzA2C61z4
In this video Linus Sebastian (most reputed techie on youtube) benchmarks and explains how even 2400 MHz RAM cannot show a noticeable difference in gaming FPS.
You're all right with a 1600MHz RAM. No,need to buy a costlier one .

Yes in gaming DRAM is basically just a conduit for data, if you other with your rig, like video, imaging, VMs, CAD, that type of thing, then that's where faster DRAM shines

Yup, the vengeance is a fine overclocker. You should not have problem overclocking it. But remember, gaming performance is not much affected if you OC above 1600MHz, even in next gen titles...but might be valuable in future.
