Thread Starter 
I will be doing music production aswell. I dont want me ram to clock out if ive got excessive amount of vsts open. To me it isnt a waste. especially when i am building for the future

EDIT:You posted red ones? I wanted blue because im doing a matching build

Tighter timings and sexy looks. I think im sold. what do you guys think?
In my opinion, 8gb is better than 4. A couple of years ago 4gb seemed miles away, but now with programs and OS's, computers are pushing 4gb in just everyday use (gaming). So if you want to stay ahead of the game, I'd go with 8 (it's not THAT much more expensive).

I would avoid that model, however. You're paying 50 extra dollars for 1600Mhz @ CL7. Sure it's great, but the chips are CL7 at 1.6v. G.Skill sells another model, 40 dollars cheaper, 1600Mhz @ CL8 1.5v: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-445-_-Product

You can save 50 dollars and easily achieve that overclock.

I should have been more clear. I was implying gaming, ontop of RAM hungry OS's, and other various programs (Skype, Steam, etc.) They all eventually add up to 4gb or even more. Sure 4gb is fine, but if you plan on doing more with your PC or just want to "prepare for the future" (RAMs cheap man) then just go for 8gb.
