Default RAM options

Which Ram to get
Mushkin 8gb or the corsair vengeance 8gb (both 1600mhz)

also do the speeds make a big difference, eg. 1333mhz vs 1600mhz

Well, it all depends on what you want to use it for. For OCing, the difference between 1333 and 1600 is a big difference. For gaming, not really.

I would personally go with G.Skill Ripjaws X. I have them in 2 systems here. Works great at a lower price than the big boys.
