My System Specs

Default Answered: To buy or not to buy, that is the question (the answer is no)

I am starting to look for deals on a CPU/Ram/MOB upgrade for my desktop. I have found someone local that is selling 4x4gb (16gb) of ddr3 for $75. The issue is that he says it has no brand (no pictures and I haven't seen it yet) and its only 1333mhz (though supposedly 1.5v CL9). If I buy new I would likely get 2x4gb (half the amount, but probably all I need) for that price on sale. I am in no rush, since I don't think I will get all my components until blackfriday/boxing week sales (or the BST on here).

The question is, do I buy or not?

Right now I am leaning towards not purchasing and getting some quality 1600+mhz 2x4gb. What would you do?

EDIT: Thanks for the opinions. Going with my and everyone else's opinion and saying pass to this random ram.
