Default Need A Nice 8GB Ram Kit For This

Well, my wife and I made a trip to Microcenter.

I caved in like a kid in front of a candy counter :P

I got the mobo and cpu on a bundle deal for $359

The CPU cooler was $70, but had a $5 instant savings and a $35 rebate
Grand total will be $30

The OCZ Vertex 3 SSD was $169 with a $50 instant savings and a $20 rebate
Grand total will be $99

Still need some Ram, but newegg has a much larger selection.

My son also bought the same Mobo bundle, except he got the i7 2600K with his.

He also got a few other things and if neweggs prices were beter, they printed the newegg add and gave to the cashier and my son got for newegg price...maybe saved an additional $15-$20

Any suggestions for a nice 8GB Ram kit









Need a nice 8GB ram kit.....suggestions ?
Should I use 1.5 volt ?

$70 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600/CAS8
$47 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600/CAS9

I am so jealous, makes me wish there was a Microcenter near me, looks like you got some great deals.

Thanks...I was sort of thinking a $50 G-Skill set would be fine at 1.5 volt.

Just wanted some more opinions.

G.Skill FTW! I only bought G.Skill for the last 6 years, and it has suited me well.
