Here is my new build, i change my ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO ALPHA for this new Motherboard, I changed my cooler but i would like some advices for the Ram... I'm mainly gaming, streaming (sometimes i have 2 games open) and going on youtube i would like to know if 16g of corsair is too much/too expensive? If it is, can you guys tell me what your proposition ? Thank you

Get some Corsair LPX Vengeance RAM instead. It's much cheaper and it's going to be fine for what your doing. I have it myself and would definitely recommend it. One more thing. Could you explain your reasoning for the storage setup you currently have in the build list? I may be able to give some input on it.

^ Agreed. It will do the job and it is has a low profile appeal to it. The CAS is decent and the price is great in my opinion. 16 Gb would probably be the best for you if you plan on running multiple applications in the background at the same time. https://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-memory-cmk16gx4m2a2400c14 This is what I suggest going with. Do you though.

A lot of games don't even get any better with an SSD. Not even loading times. Just get one 500 GB Samsung 850 EVO drive for some programs and games, and you should be fine. As for the RAM, go ahead and get 16GB. Multitasking will thank you for it.
