Default Opinions Needed

Ok, G.Skill is basically nonexistant in Canada, it simply isn't carried, and I would really, really like some.

So, I've found someone who is selling some brand new G.Skill PC4400, found here, for $335CDN (about $270USD). My other choice is OCZ Rev2 PC3200 which goes for about $350CDN. The guy who is selling the RAM is passing through my town sometime next week so I can meet him and basically buy it then, so I'm not concerned with fraud or anything of that nature.

RAM is going into an Athlon 64 system, but will be used in a P4 system until I buy the new AMD processor.

So yay or nay?

Intel C2D E6320 / AMD Athlon X2 3800+
Gigabyte 965P DS3 / DFI nF4 Ultra-D
2GB OCZ Gold PC2-6400 / 2GB OCZ Gold PC4000
eVGA 8800GTS 320MB / eVGA 6800GS 256MB
150GB Raptor / 74GB Raptor
2x500GB / 320GB
OCZ GameXStreme 850w / OCZ StealthXStream 600w

Hey Gaara, check out pccanada.com first. They have some of the cheapest RAM prices I've seen in Canada - by far. If you know better, tell me

Also, what kind of overclock r u thinking? I hear the OCZ VX 3200 Gold can reach 250 @ 2-2-2-5. Only $270. You really need to give it a lot of juice tho. lol
