    Hello everyone !

    Im using a G.Skill RAM memory (8GB), I was thinking in changing to a new one since prices are really low nowadays.
    Here is what Im using:

    G.Skill 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz Ripjaws Series (9-9-9-24) Dual Channel kit (F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL)

    I mostly do heavy gaming, photoshop, video editing, etc

    If you can recommend me something I will really appreciated.

    Thanks in advance !

    personally I agree, get another 8gb of mem, that is great memory you have already.

    100% agreed add another 8GiB. That RAM is fast enough to handle whatever you want to chuck at it already from what you have stated.

    If anything add some money towards a better future processor or graphics card as opposed to memory. The better your processor the faster your video transcoding and image generation will be, etc.

    I have the exact same CPU and MoBo. I have a Samsung 500gb 830.
    I use the onboard video, but I have 32 GB of Ram.

    My setup is awesome. Add the RAM. That's about all you can do to improve your rig.
    Oh, and you shouldn't need to overclock that puppy. Mine runs at 3.9GHZ with all 4 cores enabled. :)

    Also, If you used the stock Intel cooler, redo the CPU heatsink with Arctic Silver. The temperature drop will help you in the long run.
