    just get 2x 8gb memory. Since you're building a micro atx computer, i'd also recommend an aftermarket cpu cooler for low noise profile and better heat dissipation. do you have a case or am i left to guess it's out in the open, naked? not sure why you have a seagate 5900 rpm sata II hard drive. I'd recommend a more robust 7200 RPM 1tb hard drive and possibly an SSD for quicker boot up/installation. If you're reusing the seagate HDD from a previous computer, then use it as a secondary back up drive.

    ps. i always recommend at least 2 drives: one for primary, another for back up. You never know if your primary hard drive may die or get infected with a virus. peace.

  4. I was going to go for the 2x 8gb but i found an amazing deal on a 16 gb ram kit by corsair :)
  5. If it costs you less per overall ratio, then you should grab it by all means.
