Either one will get you get you to the 1100mhz range basically it comes down to which one is the better deal. Right now the crucial ballistix is tad bit cheaper.

A week ago it was alot cheaper with the MIR.

i would still go with the gskill unless the crucial is alot cheaper since they are more common and have heard consistent o/c's of them

Crucial is like the underdog, but it is as good, if not better. It's just not as heard of, because HZ is suggested up the arse, so much.
