    I'm looking for recommendations for a reliable 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3-1600 kit. Preferably one without a heat spreader and other cosmetic gimmicks.

    I'm building a home office rig (programming) with two 27" screens that can handle a 2560 x 1440 resolution and need a video card to run them. The machine would run Fedora Linux, so I'm looking for an NVIDIA card as my experience is that the closed source drivers are the most stable under KDE...
