New build...RAM I want out of stock. wait or suggestions?

Hi, I am about to order the parts from Newegg to build a new PC, but the RAM I want is currently out of stock. Is there something comparable for about the same price $209 that can also OC well? If not, I'll go ahead and wait, I think it will be in stock in about a week. This is the system:

eVGA 8800GTX
Intel Core 2 duo E6400 (2.13GHz)
G.skill 2GB 800 RAM (red) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820231098
Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS
Asus P5B-E Motherboard
Seasonic S12 600W supply
Seagate Barracuda 320GB ST3320620AS
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 70SB073A00000
Lite-on DVD-RW SHM-165H6S

  1. OCZ has had a spotty track record lately. I would not recommend OCZ RAM at all.
  2. Yeah, I'll probably just wait about a week for the g.skill ones to get in stock
  3. Anyone know of using this corsair ram with the P5B-E moterhboard? It's in stock, timings are better, and isn't that much more after rebate. What do you think?

  4. I just ordered this RAM. It's a great price after rebate.

    what mobo?
  6. Asus P5B Deluxe
  7. Pretty good price, but I typically recommend Cosair RAM even though they are slightly more expensive. I consider the extra money as "peace of mind" since I never had any problems with Corsair RAM.
  8. Agreed...

    But these were in the price range he wanted...

    Personally I would recommend the Crucial Ballistix Line... the cheapest of which - will run you about $290 for DDR2 800
  9. Ok, well most of the reader comments on newegg that use my mobo (P5B-E) seems that the Corasairt works good, so should I just get this one?

    (going from $209 with the G.skill to $234 with Corsair plus better timings)
  10. looks like the G.Skill is back in stock that you wanted
