Ok i'm building a new rig and don't know which memory to get.

I can either get a larger mem but with slower timings or a smaller mem with faster timings.

Which one will be better ..

I am building a C2 E6400 with a Gygabyte 965P DS3, and will be getting a 7900GTO GC.

Corsair 800 timimngs 5-5-5-12

Corsair 667 timings 4-4-4-12

Both are roughly the same price so please can u help me. I wil be looking at OC to 3.0-3.2ghz.

Normally, larger is better, but it seems like you meant "faster speed rating," not "larger." Since they're both 2GB, they look pretty much the same to me.
