Someone who understands RAM (I don't) please suggest a $100ish 4gb set

I've been looking up guides, etc. but I don't have a thorough understanding of the subtleties of RAM.

After much research my build is ready:

Currently I have this RAM set... G.Skill Eco series 4gb

I just wanna make sure I'm getting the best set for my budget - I'll spend up to like $120 on RAM

So if this is fine, great. If someone would like to throw out a suggestion or two and please explain their recommendation, awesome. Thanks in advance.

  1. Like I say in the build thread, I'd go with the Ripjaws over the ECO.

    Why? And are Ripjaws the best option overall, or between the two?
  3. Take this over your current selection -

    Consider the better heat spreaders on the Ripjaws as the reason for recommendation.. They look good also btw..
  4. Best answer
    1- The Ripjaws has better reviews and rating.
    2- Some ECO has compatibility problems with Intel and AMD.
    3- The Ripjaws can run at 1.5V without problems
