    Vengeance 1600. The extra speed of the dominator will make absolutely no difference at all. In fact, in benchmarks the only difference found is theoretical... I'd gladly take the extra money off your hands rather than you throwing it down the drain ;P

    Also, Sandy Bridge prefers 1.5V to 1.65V

    I've heard about that but I've seen people use 1.65v and its been fine

    Heard a few good things about the G Skill Ripjaw's "built for Sandy Bridges" type sticks? They're fairly cheap too.
