I was going to recommend going with 16GB but I wasn't sure how price sensitive the OP. As for sell of review units, I haven't seen any RAM being sold as of late but using the review GPU as reference, they go pretty quick. Some people are already tossing out DDR4 for relatively good price (close to MSRP but with no tax).

Corsair Vengeance LPX, GSkill Rip Jaw V, Kingston HyperX Fury, Crucial Ballistix Sport. These are the ones I use in my personal builds and customers builds.

Pick your budget, pick your speed, pick your aesthetics. When in doubt get more RAM at slower speeds. I usually recommend DDR4-2600. Good blend of speed and price... but use DDR4-2400 as well. No real need to go above 2600 unless you need the minor boost in performance.

Most of my review stuff is sold via PM and emails to a few peeps I deal with often. If anyone wants to be added to my list just drop me a line. I don't have much to sell... right now... but that will change soon /whistle. Dont deal with RAM very often though as most goes into my own builds. ;)

... or, as happened to me, buying 3000 was cheaper than slower RAM. Just something to keep an eye out for.

Yeah NCIX RAM stock is pretty poor lately. I ordered from Newegg.ca instead a few weeks ago.

For example: Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Desktop Memory Model 997199F - Newegg.ca
