Is this ram OK?

I was gonna get the sniper 8gb but its sold out :( so will this be equivalent? Its kinda ugly but since i dont have a window on my case it doesn't really matter i guess haha


Also would I be better off running those 2 sticks in dual channel or just grabbing 1 stick?

You're much better running in dual channel. 

That first link you posted, that RAM is completely fine. 

alright sounds good thanks man
