So my MOBO will be the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... I may OC a little down the road once I get my build running smoothly. Crossfire is also a possibility. Lastly, I wish to purchase my hardware this Friday.

Now that you know this... I am having a hard time deciding on RAM.

What is the difference between these two G.SKILLs?
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL:

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB F3-1600C9D-8GAO:

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

What is the difference between these two Crucials?
Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 8GB BLT2KIT4G3D1608DT2TXOB:

Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 8GB BLT2KIT4G3D1608DT2TXRG:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

As you can see... I have some sorting out to do and really need your help!!!! I am open to suggestions on RAM other than the listed above as long as it is under $60.

Thanks in advance.

Why do you say Sniper? I am a noob with all of this so bare with me. I noticed the voltage rating is 1.25... Is that a bonus when OC'ing RAM so your temp stays down? I am eager to learn these things, I just do not know where to go.

Is this the RAM?

Mushkin has been around a long time.. they started as a family business that was bought out and expanded. They have been in the memory business solely until recently as they now also participate in the SSD market. Good quality/customer service.

I recommend CORSAIR Vengeance 99% of the time, quality RAM and low profile with XMP profile. And if u will get an aftermarket CPU cooler, low profile is the worry free remedy with perfect fit with any large cooler.
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Vengeance Low Profile heat spreaders have a reduced height of 1.03" (26.25mm). They're designed for high-performance systems with extra-large CPU coolers, small form factor system builds, or any other space-constrained application where standard Vengeance memory might not fit.

They will work just fine. Its fine RAM.

U can have that one or the Sniper series that Area51reopened posted.

Its new RAM and works fine. And its better for your CPU, as it handle faster RAM with no problem.


U are talking about this one -> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Sorry. Forgot to add the link. Those are a tad cheaper than these...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Would the $5 extra be worth the lower CL of 8?
