Hello DivineAA, Welcome to GeeksToGo!
For the RAM, I would highly suggest you pick up a different one as Crucial Ballistix aren't that good anymore, I have heard a lot people complaining that they keep getting errors, the sticks are defective and the sticks are not compatible more than those that have bought from a different manufacturer. I'm not saying there's no risk of getting a defective one if you buy from different manufacturer but you'll probably have higher chance of getting a defective one if you get Ballistix.
Anyways, Mushkin is the way to go if you're shopping at NCIX as you're not only getting a quality build from them, you also get MushkinGreg
He does a lot of support on their forum and always there to help (I mean everyday). So here's what I suggest
, it is cheaper than the Crucial as well.
Everything else looks great.
I have shopped at NCIX and they generally have great support (you can use the call back feature if you have any problems with your order). Also, they have sales that starts every Wednesday (I think it starts 7pm PST), you have to make sure that if one of your orders are on sale that you select the product from the sale page or the sale price will not automatically change if you selected the regular one. Also one great thing about NCIX is that they honour price matching. You can use this site
to compare prices from different online stores. Just make sure what your price matching is also in stock on that other online store.
Hope that helps.
