About to buy parts for a new computer, and while I am pretty sure everything is good I thought I should double check.

    Get the 8GB of DDR3 1600. Its worth the extra money if only to make sure you have enough RAM. Besides, that'll ensure you won't need to upgrade more in the future. Just make sure you have 64-bit OS installed for it to use all 8GB of RAM.
  2. Alright thanks I will go the ddr3 1600 route then.
