So you guys think the 13-14-14 timing with kingston isn't that great of an improvement? I mean it's a combo with the CPU i picked out so It's like the same price as getting the other 16 GB Quad Channel G Skill RAM, Either way i'm sticking with 16 GB because I don't do video editing just audio editing so I doubt I would ever need more than 16 GB. However I just want the best RAM that will prevent my DAW Software from Crashing and having problems with performance. Because the software I use allows me to load audio samples into RAM which is amazing! Thanks again for all the replies.

The combo only knocks $75 off which'd still make it like $40 more expensive than the Corsair kit and you're not going to see any performance increase warranting that expense I guarantee. Memory speed/timings within the same generation makes such little *real world* difference that it's not worth paying more for "faster" memory trust me.

So in your honest opinion you think the cheaper G Skill RAM will do just fine? so Timing by 2 points isn't a big difference? I mean if I save money on RAM I might just switch out my SSD for an Intel 750 PCIe SSD

Gskill? You mean Corsair? And yes the jump from SATA to PCI-E SSD should be more helpful than the RAM for sure.

If you want ram reliability a Xeon and an ECC kit might do better for you. I don't think I have ever had trouble with RAM when I run it at or below rated speeds as long as the dims weren't defective.

His: Xeon X3450 @ 4.0GHz / GA-P55A-UD3 / Corsair DDR3 8gb / MSI HD 7970 OC / Noctua D15 / Seagate 500GB HDD / Lian Li K58 / Corsair TX 650

Hers: FX 8320 @ 4.51GHz / GA-990XA-UD3 / G.Skill DDR3 8gb 1600 / EVGA GTX 660 SC / Hyper 212+ / WD 1TB Green  / Antec 300 / Corsair CX 600

Parents: i5 4590 @ 3.5GHz / GA-G1 Sniper B6 / Corsair DDR3 8gb / MSI GTX 960LE / Hyper 212+ / 128gb SSD / 1tb HDD / F.D. R4 / Corsair CXM 500
