Default G.skill vs OCZ

Which of these two RAM sets is better? RAM is not my strong point so I dont really know.
G.skill
OCZ
I was thinking about the OCZ because it was about the same price after a rebate, but then i saw the G.Skill for like $40 less, plus its an instant rebate, not a mail in. They both have the same timings, etc. I just want to know if they are about the same quality, etc. I will be overclocking my system in my sig (the picture). I am gonna buy it this weekend, maybe today so any help is appreciated. If the G.skill is just as good i would perfer to save the money or put it into something else.

I know they are both good brands, but i havent heard much about this g.skill RAM, while ive heard good things about this OCZ. I think im gonna go with the G.skill unless i hear something that convinces me not to.

I don't know about G Skill but OCZ has GREAT quality/performance, but G. SKill also gets good reviews.

G.Skill is EXTREMLY nice if you can get ahold of sticks with the TCCD chips which i doubt you can....
