So decided as I got some extra cash my memory is something I would like to upgrade

2133 or 2400 is the speed im thinking and really would prefer 2x8gb sticks I think so if I want I can upgrade one day to 32gb even though that would be totally overkill but hey who cares lol but then I see these new samsung sticks

So

Should I go for

Samsung Green 16GB (4x4GB) 30nm and OC to 2133 or possibly 2400 £77

Or

Go for a different 2133 or 2400 2x8gb kit depending what I can find for a resonable price (So far not finding much for less than around £100, best I found so far is the Patriot Viper "Black Mamba" Generation 3 16GB (2x8GB) 2133 but apparently they OC to 2400 easy for £99)

So what do you guys think?

I'd probably save the slots for future expansion. But honestly, memory keeps dropping cheaper and cheaper. Just get the 32GB when you can afford it, and you'll probably never upgrade or touch memory again (until you build a new computer)
