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?

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.
