8gb RAM for $30 (cas 9) :: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231428

16GB RAM for $60 (cas 9) x2 of these :: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231428 <--- so cheap, so tempting...

8gb RAM for $55 (cas 8) :: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231445 (ignore current price on this link)


Which should I go for general usage/gaming?

8GB CAS9 is fine. The differences are worth maybe $5, but definitely not $25

8GB CAS9. CAS8 definitely does not worth extra $25.
