    The color of the RAM will make no difference. Get the RAM with the lowest latency. As far as a GPU, unless you game no need really. Your rig can handle anything

    thank you.
    the only reason I have Corsair is because thats what the guy on Youtube recommended.
    I think I will try your recommendation instead, though.

    do you think it will be as easy to enable XMP with these?
    (with the Corsair, all I had to do was change it from disabled to Profile #1, to get 3200 MHz.)

    Take your time, read reviews. I am a new fan of Gskill, this is my first set and I love it. Also check the QVL list for your MB. That is the set I was originally going to get, but ordered the wrong set. My profile is 16-18-18-38-2t but I have it running at 15-17-17-1t @3466 for benchmarks

    I'm not getting any more RAM.
    I checked my Page File Usage in HWiNFO64, while playing my piano programs (and really wailing away), and my Page File Usage was 0%.
    that means I do not need any more RAM.
