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=N82E1682...
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

OCZ has had a spotty track record lately. I would not recommend OCZ RAM at all.

Yeah, I'll probably just wait about a week for the g.skill ones to get in stock

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

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.

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

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)
