I'm planning to upgrade to 8gb since it's so cheap but I've been wondering if I really need something like the HyperX Blu or Corsair Dominator (though the later only comes in dual kits of 4gb) if I have no intentions of Overclocking.
The A-data sticks I want to get are these:
They just seem better than Kingston's value ram, but I'm not sure if A-data is regarded as a "decent" brand among non-overclockers.
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.

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.
