DDR4 should be out before 2014.

Though that would necessitate a new mobo.

Just some food for thought. I just rebuilt my PC this month and kind of wish I'd held off.

Bah. Nothing wrong with Corsair but there are other brands with customer service just as good as Corsair's, and since Corsair doesn't make the RAM it sells anyway, it stops mattering. I say get the cheapest RAM from a reputable brand. If it's G.Skill, Samsung, Mushkin, Corsair, Crucial, it doesn't matter.

I think corsair is the cheapest among the ones you listed, but mushkin might be cheaper.



Also if you plan to add another 8GB stick wouldn't it be better if its the same as the one already installed?

Crucial is actually cheaper by around 10-15 bucks for 2x4gb sticks. I've been checking every couple of weeks.
