  1. If u have win7 x64bit,

    get 8GB minimum, if u edit video and doing some more with PC than video games,

    get 16GB RAM.

    But why not get 16GB anyway if its so cheap? It will run everything smoother.

    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.
  3. Or 8GB.

  6. Depends on how much you want to spend, whether you overclock etc.
    I quite like the look of the new 8GB modules (so you get 2x8GB).
    I think the F3-2400C10D-16GTX looks quite decent (2x8GB modules, DDR3-2400), but then again, its probably overkill It does seem to be a good balance between price and performance though (considering its 16GB).
  7. Good luck!
