i'd say the OCZ Golds would be a better choice personally, but i know i've had some sweet G.Skill sticks over the years

Computer Store - OCZ 3G1600LV3GK PC3-12800 1GX3 GOLD C8 - $228 <- that's the cheapest i can find them, and apparently they'll OC like a beast!

Im getting my RAM and Video card from the states (Newegg). Ends up being cheaper.

Newegg.com - OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

well if your getting them from the US its even better! personally i wouldn't get the CAS9 G.Skills... they've got an 8-8-8 set (same as the Golds) for only a little bit more, so i'd opt for them, because those timings will really help you out

There is this cheaper looking G.Skill set that has better much timings but 1333mhz.
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

What do you recon of those? Cas 7. $25 less.

Wont those hit 1500mhz anyway?
