harddrive 350gb 7200 from my old computer


I also just ordered g skill ram 4x4 gb 2133 for 100 bucks. i've been told that this is just overkill for gaming so i'm thinking to refuse package on delivery and order 2x4 g skill 1600. for about 60 bucks cheaper. what do you think?
or should i just keep it because its a good deal?

any suggestion or ideas would be appreciated. thank you
