I have a Z77A-GD65 Gaming + i7 3770k + 6970.
I need some opinions on these RAMs; which is better for the buck? Which performs better, etc..?
1, 2, 3, 4, or 5?


Can your motherboard support 2133MHz ram?

If so I can help find a good deal on ram... Also dual channel 16gb is better than quad channel.

His motherboard supports up to 3000MHz.

I use the G.Skill Sniper series and it's given me absolutely no problems at all. The Corsair Vengeance you have selected will give you slightly better overclockability however.

I would either get two of the G.Skills (4x2GB) or the Mushkin (8x2GB). Dual channel vs Quad channel, there is no difference.
