Help me decide between these two:

PATRIOT 8GB KIT DDR3 1600MHz CL8-8-8-24 Gaming Sector 5 Series
or
CORSAIR 8GB KIT DDR3 1600MHz CL9-9-9-27 XMS3


Thanks.
Corsair is overpriced, you dont need 8gb for only gaming. Get superfast 4gb, like a 2000 mhz 8-8-8-24, the performance increase will be much more than if you get 8gb.

Out of those two, patriot.

It all depends on the timings and the rest of your system.You would be wise to choose a high frequency kit to use the higher bandwith of SandyBridge.If you get mid-range RAM you might as well stay with 1156.

No, there's not even much difference between 1066 and 2000 in games.

Side note, I've read that SB will support up to 2133mhz memory.
Why upgrade?

I don't know why people keep saying Corsair is over priced, 2x4gb xms3 is only $85 at Newegg right now, less than the Ripjaw.

(I'm not bringing that up because it's what I've got either)

Okay, thanks. So, what about this one?

KINGSTON 4GB KIT DDR3 2000MHz HyperX CL9 XMP Tall HS
or
CORSAIR 4GB KIT DDR3 2000MHz CL8 Dominator GT DHX

Ergh, that Corsair is with 2 additional fans. :/

how about this one?GSkill Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 2000 CL9 1.6v

The reason everyone keeps throwing GSkill out is because they overclock so well and are reasonably priced.Where are you located?

I don´t want to buy it via internet. I can and want buy only from my local shop. They offers only what I posted here.

Here is the link to the shop:

I would be tempted to try these A-data's-I think they may have shipped with Elpida Hypers-the specs are very nice-http://www.alza.cz/EN/a-data-4gb-kit...es-d193638.htm

These low-voltage Kingston are impressive
http://www.alza.cz/EN/kingston-4gb-k...on-d203994.htm
other than these 2 the Corsair 2000Mhz GT's are the best bet.The Patriot's are fine-but we really don't know too much about SB yet-so you go with the best specs.
