Right now I have two 4g sticks, and I'm not sure what brand they are. I believe they are low quality. I'm looking to upgrade to 12-16g of ram, and I'm unsure of what to buy. I primarily game, and I know I need something low profile. I'm open to any suggestions!

I have the SABERTOOTH 990FX Motherboard, amd FX 4170 processor, GeForce GTX 560 Ti, and I have a 750w power supply.

Thanks for the help!

Would you mind explaining the main differences in those 4? They're all around the same price.

They are all fairly similar. Though if you primarily game going from 8bg to 16gb won't improve performance any. Huge amounts of ram only helps high end photoshop and video editing.

Color, style and brand :) 

All 4 are good brands, and I would feel completely comfortable buying any of those 4. Which one would go best with the design of your current system?
