to be quite honest, you don't need 16 gigs. What are you using computer for? I feel like you could save a lot of money by not buying more memory. Buy a better CPU maybe? You would probably see more of a difference in performance with a faster CPU

if you don't really need the extra ram, you should look into buying a new processor.

Hold out on the Phenom II x6
Your motherboard will be AMD FX Series compatible. Which means all you have to do is wait 1-2 months and you could instead be getting some 32nm 8 core goodness

Also 16GB of RAM... totally overkill unless you use RAM disks/VM apps. I have 8GB of RAM and even with 1080p HD video editing I can't max it. You can get good 2x4GB kit of DDR3-1600 for $75 nowadays.
