Can anyone recommend a good set of 2x4GB (8GB) RAM for my gaming build?

After looking through reviews on newegg I can't decide what memory to get for my gaming build. I know I want 8GB (2x4GB) because I read somewhere that 16GB is overkill. The company "Team" has memory that seems to be getting pretty good reviews but it seems cheap. What speed would you recommend also? Is there a big difference between DDR3-1600 and DDR3-2400? I will be running this RAM with the following components:

i5-4670K 3.4 GHz
ASUS Maximus Hero
EVGA Superclocked GTX 770 2GB

Good pairing for the Hero and 4670K.

And a great price.

I think a 8GB kit DDR3-1600 is enough for gaming , u can only see the difference between them in benchmarks . Grab a kit with beautiful heatsink and you will be fine:D

yea but for 75$ which is like how much 1600 Mhz Gskills usually cost its worth it, go with the 2400 its higher quality RAM, even if the mobo can only use say 1866Mhz it wont be running at its max
