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 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$45 CML8GX3M2A1600C9B - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mushkin kits DDR3-1600 CAS 8-8-8-24 @ 1.50v
$55 Mushkin 997043 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$55 Mushkin 997046 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Compare $46 vs $77
$46 12800CL9D-8GBXL - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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 ...

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.

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).

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.
