  1. I would get the Ballistix. No need to pay more.

    First off where you're shopping is a total ripoff so I'd shop @ NewEgg.

    Corsair kits DDR3-1600 CAS 9-9-9-24 @ 1.50v
    $45 CML8GX3M2A1600C9 -
    $45 CML8GX3M2A1600C9B -

    Mushkin kits DDR3-1600 CAS 8-8-8-24 @ 1.50v
    $55 Mushkin 997043 -
    $55 Mushkin 997046 -

    Compare $46 vs $77
    $46 12800CL9D-8GBXL -
  3. I cant shop at neweeg cuz it dsnt ship INT. I live in Albania where hardwares are overpriced. So i need to buy from eBay.
    Example Nzxt 410 Tempest elite cost 120 Euro
    I bought it for 70$+ Shping at eBay.

    So thats my only option. If u can find any other ram on ebay ...
  4. Check those kits I posted above or get the Crucial Ballistix 2x4GB kit.

    Also check Amazon (Albania is listed) -
  5. In a nutshell, I am not very International purchasing/shipping/RMA/warranties savvy and what I would do is to also research the costs and RMA (exchange) policies for ANY component you choose to purchase. Many of these companies do business Globally but I'd look into worst case.

    Meaning, living in the US I can see buying in Canada or maybe Mexico, but the only way I would buy from Europe is if I had no other choice and/or the RMA/warranties were valid in the US and then I'd need to factor in shipping and downtime costs.
  6. Till now had no problem's with buying from eBay and with warranties (hope it will continue so)

    G.SKILL Ripjaws F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL 8GB 2x4GB DDR3 1600 PC3 12800 Desktop RAM 50-55$

    I found this one w/ lifetime warranty . Its used for 1 month and NOT DOA.

    Does Ram Stick fail after some months or its rare ?
  7. Across the list of components the overall failure rate is 1%~3%. Also not all lines of any product are the same nor are their failure rates.

    Frankly, I cannot even recall seeing Mushkin having a bad stick (knock on wood).
  8. Ill try buying from germany cuz the ram is really cheap there. Only 35$ G.skill . Thank you jaquith

  10. G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series are really nice. I just picked up 2 x 8GB 1600 @ newegg for $85, before that I had 2 x 4GB 1333.
