    If so I can help find a good deal on ram... Also dual channel 16gb is better than quad channel.
    I need some opinions on these RAMs; which is better for the buck? Which performs better, etc..?
    1, 2, 3, 4, or 5?

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