Hello, I need some help picking memory for the system I'm building.
Important system specs:
Crosshair IV Formula Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Processor
Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 1GB Toxic Edition
Ultra X4 750-Watt Modular Power Supply
Both of these look pretty good but there might be something else thats better.
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL
G.SKILL Trident 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model F3-16000CL9D-4GBTD
Thanks for the help!

Hello and welcome to the forums
I would go with the first one,because it has lower voltages and the difference between 1600 and 2000 isn't much, and also its cheaper too.

Yes, I would go for the first one too and would like to add that I think you wouldn't see that much of a difference between them anyway.
