I want to get some new RAM for my computer. I will be upgrading from 2x2gb cards of Corsair XMS3. I have had my heart set on Corsair's 4gb Vengeance cards for a while now, but I'm not sure if it is worth it. My friends have suggested Kingston HyperX T1, which supposedly performs better and is cheaper.
Requirements of ram:
Available in 4gb sticks
Under ~250 USD for 16gb (Is that unreasonable? Thats about the price of Vengeance in New Zealand)
Preferably black or grey as I have an open case
Compatible with GA-P67A-UD4-B3 and Intel Core i7 2600k
As Tom's and Anandtech has shown any of the brand name DDR3 RAM of the same specs performs virtually identical. As long as the RAM is approved for your CPU it should function fine. Be sure that any RAM with top mounted heatsinks will clear your CPU HSF as many HSFs can cover the first DIMM slot.
