Which of these will be better for gaming, and go best with my i5 2500k?
Sniper: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Ripjaws: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Or should I throw in a couple extra bucks to get 2133 if I overclock:

Is that even worth it, or just stick with 1600?

stick with the 1600MHz ram, you wan't see any improvement going above that. Between, the sniper and ripjaws, go for whichever runs at 1.5 volts (important).

I thought lower voltage was better?
the snipers run at 1.25

yes, I was just making sure you didn't go with 1.65 volt ram. but if you can get lower voltage ram, that is good also.

Also keep in mind that lower voltage kits may not overclock as well, so that is something you should consider since you mentioned overclocking.

Thank you
