Just looking for some advice. I currently have 6GB 1333MHz DDR3 and am starting to bottleneck when playing BF3 (95% utilized, using Vista64). Does it make sense to upgrade to four 4GB modules since it really isn't all that expensive? Also, should I be looking at 1600MHz?

From the spec page for my mobo -
http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2...

1.6 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 24 GB of system memory (Note 1)
2.Dual/3 channel memory architecture
3.Support for DDR3 2100+/1333/1066/800 MHz memory modules

Doesn't say anything about supporting 1600 MHz. Is this just an old spec that hasn't been updated?

Would the below memory be a good selection?

Any other recommendations?

That RAM is fine. The manual for your board shows it supports up to 2100MHz RAM at 1.5V.
