Btw, when I say option I mean which memory from the selection is best used for a gaming machine...and I am using a dual-core i5 661 @ 3.3ghz cpu.

I would probably just stick with a 2x 4GB set of 1333 or 1600 1.5v RAM and call it a day. Once you go beyond that, the price really escalates. Unless you are really hot-rodding your machine, I don't think you would notice any real world difference if you dumped a bunch of money into a set of 2133 RAM, nor do most users need more than 8GB (depending on the programs you are running.)
