Default New RAM kit


So today one of my sticks out of a Corsair XMS3 kit died . So, I'm planning on RMAing it. Now, this kit seriously isn't to good when i check it's rating out on the Windows Experience. I'm getting a rating of 5.4 which is crap compared to the rest of the ratings. The rest of the ratings are all above 7, almost reaching 7.9. So, I was looking at getting a Gskill set. The other thing is, the my rig takes to render a 5 minute video is something like 10-15 minutes 1080p whereas if i were to compare a similar rig except an i7 950 running at 2.8ghz, the i7 would be quicker.

Here is the GSkill set: G-Skill 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz Ripjaws Memory Kit.. | Ebuyer.com

Now, when it comes to RAM i don't really have a clue.

I have an AMD build and the budget is 40.

I've filtered the search on ebuyer so if you could kindly help me out i'd be really appreciated. You can make alterations to the clock speed but no alterations to the price. I'm looking for best bang for the quid.

Memory - PC - DDR3 1600MHz | Ebuyer.com

My current system:
Asus M4A88T-V EVO USB3
AMD Phenom II x6 2.8Ghz (3.2Ghz in turbo mode)
WD 320GB 7,200RPM HD (Low scoring, planning on Raptor or setting up RAID)
WD 500GB 5,400RPM Secondary - For Linux
WD 1TB 5,400RPM - All my music, videos etc.
Arctic Power 700W
