What Mobo do you have?

Might be better off getting a triple channel set

I have a p7p555d -e pro, sorry for leaving that out. Thanks for the quick response, I thought for core i5 /mobo the dual channel was best? I heard 8 GB was overkill for a mostly gaming PC.

Tried Googling your Mobo, I only get 3 swedish hits lol,
in general though, if your Mobo has the faciliity for dual/triple channel on memory lanes, youre going to get the best results from using that,
Maybe someone else can chip in later, not sure what time americans wake up :p

hehe thats better,
You got four Dimm slots which suggests to me dual channel, so no triplechannel issues there,If you think the Shellshock things a deal, compare the two products to check similarites, cl timings etc,(Lower they are,faster the ram runs) and go from there, I got to get some sleep now man, nightshifts :( 
Hope I helped a little though,
