So I've been doing a lot of research and have come down to a few options, I'm hoping to get some opinions:

12gb:

Or should I just go for the full boat and grab 24gb:

I've done a lot of searching around about those "Gaming" sticks, and most people say it's just for show or bling...

Thanks in advanced!

I can't imagine the situation where 24 GB would be needed over 12GB. I got 8 installed and never come close to using it all, lol.

If you don't plan on overclocking, most decent brand RAM is the same.

Sorry, I should have mentioned that...

I do plan on overclocking, also I have heard that it's a bit harder to maintain OC with large amounts of RAM.

Well, the more modules installed, the harder it is, yes. Just more chances to have a less stable chip in the mix.

More memory modules presents a higher electrical load on the memory bus with some degradation in the digital signal quality which can result in less stability.

Out of what you posted the PV7312G1600ELK 3x4GB is plenty unless you do a lot of non-gaming rendering or large databases then the PV7324G1333ELHK from your selections.

While 'faster' RAM on LGA 1366 helps +2FPS~+8FPS (PV7312G2000ELK) you MUST OC the BCLK to 160MHz to keep them stable.
