Default Ram Question

I have the ASUS A8N32 motherboard and I wanted some opinions on this ram:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227066 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227219

Any tips?

I would go with corsair. Asus boards have problems with OCZ sometimes. The OCZ is slightly faster. Out of the two you found, I'd get the cheaper one.

You may want to get this if you experience a problem.

Thanks guys, I'm not just looking for the best. I don't know about latencys and what not, but is this good:
Cas Latency 3
Timing 3-4-4-8

For the corsair? I don't want to upgrade my PC because my ram is too slow in the future, so I want to buy the best of the best at a reasonable price !

The OCZ is 3-4-3-8 so its not much slower. If you push some more voltage through it, you may be able to get more speed.
