Unhappy is this ram any good

i was looking to get the gskill hz soon, but with the price increase, its out of my reach. so trying to research some memory that fit into my budget.
is this a good ram. how about overclockability? will be using it with either the e6320 or the quad and msi-p6n-Sli - mushkin 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
or - GeIL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
how much worse are these compared to the gskill hz

I would really pay some more cash for some better ram.

The CPU you have has a very low multiplier so good memory is critical. - OCZ Platinum 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail these will do over 500fsb
