If you will be gaming then go for the 4GB version otherwise the 2GB version will do just fine.

I'll have to apologize to both Reece and joedaman.
The motherboard Reece has is actually DDR4 supported and not DDR3.
I looked up the wrong motherboard. Sorry about that.

MOBO: Asus Maximus 6 Hero - GPU: Gigabyte GTX 980ti xtreme - CPU: I7-4770K - PSU: Corsair AX760
RAM: Corsair Vantage 2x4GB - SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 512 + LiteOn LCS-256 - Case: NZXT H440

Sorry I'm not sure I'm with you.

His motherboard socket is 1151 - Already the latest Intel
His RAM is DDR4 - Already the latest version

If he buys a new motherboard he'll only be buying a board with DDR4 and an 1151 socket AGAIN in all probability. With no benefit. Complete waste of money.

And there was a mistake if you look back through

Athlon II x4 645 || 1TB 7200rpm HDD || EVGA GTX 650Ti OC || 8GB DDR3 RAM || Windows 7 Home x64

i5 4210M || 500GB Samsung EVO 850 SSD || GeForce 825M || 16GB DDR3 RAM || Windows 10 x64
