  1. if you are really tight with your budget even 4gb is enough, but 8gb is more than enough for any kind of gaming...
    have fun
  2. 8 is too much if you only want to play bf4 and crysis 3. If you want to do multitasking and playing 8 gigs is exactly what you need.

    Ok how about this:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CML8GX3M2A1600C9-Vengeance-Profile-Performance/dp/B00569K7LM/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1397816112&sr=8-4&keywords=Corsair+8gb
  4. I have better idea for your ram; Though that ram you listed is what you want for sure and is good ram.

    When you get your ram do this and has performance benefits;

    It is 1600Mhz with a Cas Latency (CL) of 9.

    1333Mhz has a CL of 8/9

    1600Mhz has a CL of 9

    1866Mhz has a CL of 9

    2133Mhz has a CL of 10

    2400MHz has a CL of 11/12

    The higher the MHz the faster the ram, the lower the CL the faster the ram, therefore 1866Mhz comes out as the best option for speed/CL offering the best performance.

    1866MHz memory modules are actually 1600Mhz memory modules given an overclock, so it's best to get a 1600Mhz module and OC it to 1866Mhz through BIOS.

    Hope this helps.
  5. That corsair is really what you need and you can still overclock it like Unknown said. Ram isn't really a problem and you still have memory on your graphics card which is way better !
