    ok so i have done a little looking around and this is what ive got. Is this a good build for a mid-high end build? Is there any better things for lower price or same price?

    good to see you back :)
    most of the things are good but just one suggestion-
    -2133 is absolute waste.it voids your cpu warranty and has no real benefit.go with 1600mhz 1.5v kit.

    So everything is good just get the 1600mhz?
    Or should I get this one?

    Ok thanks but I think I will get 16gb but should I get 2x8gb sticks or 4x4gb sticks?
  5. If you are only gaming, you do not need more than 8GB. I do not know if rendering game play would need more RAM. I would choose 4 x 4 GB costing $41, while a couple of 8GB sticks would cost you additional $60.
