I can't decide which memory to get. I play a lot of games and I am going to overclock. I got a DFI Lanparty Ultra-D with an X2 3800+ oc to 2.5ghz. I'm not buying any other memory, I've already got the money and ready to go to the store to buyy either one of the two. Which one do you think is better?

1)Mushkin XP4000 Xtreme Performance Black Series DDR SDRAM, 2GB Dual Pack $289.95

OR

2)OCZ 2GB PC4000 Gold Gamer eXtreme XTC Edition Dual Channel DDR Kit $269.95

I was originally locked on the Mushkin memory, but the OCZ Gold XTC suddenly went down $10 in price, and has a $30 mail in rebate. Am I really going to see a performance difference between the two? Especially for overclocking? Thanks guys.

Xbit labs did a review on some OCZ PC4000 memory similar to the Gold Gamer eXtreme stuff.

As you can see, it performed very well. I would personally recommend that stuff. However, I have not seen any benches on the Muskin stuff.

Both modules you posted have identical timings, so performance should be identical.
