none, if youre just gamming 16gigs is MORE than enough, its arguable that you dont need more than 8 gigs.

I know you said you will be extracting large files and video editing, but while editing 1080p content in Vegas Pro 12 I have never exceeded a total RAM consumption of 16GB. Not even close.

I too have a Microcenter store in my state but it's like a two hour drive, I'd really have to purchase a lot to justify the time and gas. I do admit Microcenter has got the best prices on cpu's, but they raise the prices on other items to make up for it. NCIX has got the best prices I've seen for hard drives. Newegg has got better prices on motherboards and Amazon is all over the place as far as I can tell. Most pc parts from Wally World are on line only plus you need to throw in some ship charges on some items and there's always taxes to add in on local items. I got my modem at Best buy.
Newegg had a Motorola SB6141 modem on sale for $75. and Best buy had it for $109. I asked for a price match and they did although I had to tell the cashier how to figure the price with taxes included because Newegg did not charge taxes. Although I despise Best buy, in a pinch they are local and they will price match

I got my 6580 from Walmart since I don't really have a way of buying things online right now. They have it for 138 online but I only paid 109 for it. Funny thing, the way it's looking I probably won't ever use it again.

Microcenter is too far from me to really justify going there to buy things unless I'm at my friends house. Fry's is much closer, but the store closest to me says they have things in stock, but never put **** on their shelves.

Ahaha sorry for derailing your thread.

Any 16GB 1600 2x8 kit that's within your budget. Doesn't really matter much.

Neither, I would personally get these.
Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 997069 - Newegg.com

Saves you 20 bucks for the same performance.

Although faster than 1600 is pointless, I wanted to point out that this kit has tighter timings and is of less cost than the other Corsair kit you linked.

CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M2A1866C9 - Newegg.com
