My current build:
http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/316tE

i am on a very low budget this time round and only really need to be able to run ArmA 3, my CPU and GPU meet these reqs now i need to know where to go with best VALUE RAM and HDD...

RAM: I am looking for minimum 6gb preferably 8gb memory DDR3 obviously @1.3ghz
HDD: Decided against SSD as the rewards for me do not outweigh the price...
Looking for at least 1TB HDD - SATA3..
and that is more or less the entirety of my hard drive knowledge :-)

any and all solutions will be greatly appreciated!

many thanks in advance guys! :D

I would really prefer a budget on RAM + HDD, otherwise, here are the cheapest one.
Other than that the build looks pretty solid.

Don't be afraid to ask question, better ask now then sorry.

There's not really a difference besides speed and it's color as both are made by the same company and same series.

The speed won't affect gaming, but it will affect how quickly things load. It's a marginal decrease in load times from 1330 MHz to 1600 MHz, so if that's not worth £10 to you, then stick with the 1330MHz Silverline!

Never be afraid to ask questions!

This, I would pay 10 pounds, especially since it would be a better value RAM and would benefit you long-term.
