I'm debating to go with G.Skill 16 GB 4x4 kits, 3200 Mhz at $125 OR 3600 Mhz at $170. What would you choose and why?

I can't justify paying an extra $100 for 3733, unless it was for 4000 mhz =\

Look at the specs in the link..?

Anyhow, this is what I would personally buy. Cheaper, faster with same amount and only takes 2 slots.

Sorry just added the links. Dual channel kit? I've heard quad channel has more bandwidth, correct me if I'm wrong.

Depends on what system is in question? If you're building Skylake then no, but if it's X99 then yes.

Get 2x8GB if you can. Even if you are going X99.

Quad Channel does not make much difference and upgrading is much easier.

I mean, I could buy 4133Mhz if I went with dual channel. For the sake of dual channel vs quad channel, what is better and by how much? I only ask since there is a small difference between 3200 Mhz and 3600 Mhz. I'm trying to squeeze out the most of the RAM slots.

I probably won't ever go for 32 GB, unless games in the future start to demand it. When I used to play COD, COD and other applications forced me off my 6 GB because it would crash due to insufficient memory. =\

I dont think X99 can do 3200MHz+. Only Z170 can do the fast memory speed. I could be wrong though.
