Which RAM is the best and has better price ratio?

I need a 16gb (or 8gb not sure) RAM. Which one should i chose?
I saw G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series
G.Skill Trident X Series
kingston hyperx ram
or
Corsair Vengeance
I also found out that Corsair vengeance is the cheapest...
So, is Corsair Veng. good? or I should have better brand like g. skill
I wont probably overclocked or do any Photoshop, etc. But, I sometimes open many taps on google chrome (if u know what i mean) and it get lagging. Should I use 8 or 16 then? (update)

  1. Yes Corsair Vengeance is good, so if its the cheapest I would go for it, about the ram capacity 8gb is enough for gaming, unless you do some large multitasking and photoshop then go with 16gb but yes go with the Corsair
  2. I'm personally a g skill fan but corsair makes good ram too so there is nothing wrong with getting that. Honestly we can't tell you which is better without the prices you are finding them for, the speed of the ram in MHz, and the latencies

    Also to decide between 8 or 16 gb what are you doing with this pc? If you aren't doing heavy video editing you can easily just get 8 gb
  3. Corsair and G.skill are equally good as brands go.
    If you are gaming, then a 8gb kit is fine.
    If you have apps that can use lots of ram, then 16gb is good.
    There is no downside to lots of ram except the cost.

    You want documented ram compatibility. If you should ever have a problem, you want supported ram.
    Otherwise, you risk a finger pointing battle between the ram and motherboard support sites, claiming "not my problem".
    One place to check is your motherboards web site.
    Look for the ram QVL list. It lists all of the ram kits that have been tested with that particular motherboard.
    Sometimes the QVL list is not updated after the motherboard is released.
    For more current info, go to a ram vendor's web site and access their ram selection configurator.
    Enter your motherboard, and you will get a list of compatible ram kits.
    While today's motherboards are more tolerant of different ram, it makes sense to buy ram that is known to work and is supported.

    The current Intel cpu's have an excellent integrated ram controller. It is able to keep the cpu fed with data from any speed ram.

    The difference in real application performance or FPS between the fastest and slowest ram is on the order of 1-3%.

    Synthetic benchmark differences will be impressive, but are largely irrelevant in the real world.

    Fancy heat spreaders are mostly marketing too.

    In fact tall heat spreaders are a negative because they can impact some cpu coolers.
    Only if you are seeking record level overclocks should you consider faster ram or better latencies.

    ---------------bottom line------------

    DDR3 1600 or 1866 1.5v low profile ram is what I would look for.
    If anything, prefer low cas numbers over speed.

    I dont understand... (QVL and those stuffs) I am kinda new :)

    for that usage go with 8gb no need for 16gb, and save some money.
