Default What RAM should I get?

I purchased this motherboard from newegg on sale a week ago: Newegg.com - ASUS P7P55D-E LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

I'm going to be getting a core i5 750 CPU and I don't know what kind of RAM to get. My price range is $100-$120, I want at least 4GB and something that OC's well.

Thanks

EDIT: Duel channell memory is what I'm looking for.

I'll probably get the first set then because the second ones are a little bit out of my price range, unless their is a set that is a set that is better for like $5 more...

well, the second set Slay linked takes a bit less voltage to achieve the same latency of cas 7. plus it just looks cooler so that's going to increase the price .

maybe this?

How much better would those sticks be over the $115 ones? Anything $120+ is out of range.
