Question Looking for New Ram sticks! Help!

Hey, looking for some assistance in picking out some new sticks for my PC as 1 stick is now dead and this is the 2nd dead stick Ive gotten (first arrived damaged free return/exchange)
my computer build as follows:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition 6 Core Processor 3.2GHZ
GPU: HD5970 1G 2GB DDR5 DP DUAL DVI PCI-E BLACK EDITION
RAM: CZ Gold OCZ3G1600LV4GK 4GB DDR3 2X2GB DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 CL 8-8-8-24
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA2 7200RPM 4.2MS 32MB
Mobo: ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 DDR3 ATX AMD 890FX 4PCI-E16 2PCI CrossFireX 6

I was playing games like Battlefield3, rts/fps/etc.. fine but errors with crashes and help from Microsoft leads to a faulty stick, took one stick out now it runs without the crashes. Looking for better ram if anyone doesn't mind helping me out quickly, Ive always come to these forums and people have always been very helpful, so thank you in advance.

How many sticks are you looking for?

Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

I'd go for one of these (essentially the same, just different spreaders):
Newegg.ca - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
Newegg.ca - G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR

You only save ~$15 by getting a 4GB kit, so unless money is tight why not go 8
