Best RAM for new system

Hello.
New system specs are:
E6600 or E6420 (when it comes out), Gigabyte DS3, evga Superclocked 8800 GTS.
System use is mainly university stuff, some heavy applications now and then and games.

I want to get some 2gb 800mhz ddr2
Options are (not US prices):
- Corsair Dominator CL4 @ 400$
- OCZ CL3 @ 400$
- OCZ CL4 @ 300$
- Some Kreton\LD CL5 @ 200$

My question is how important CL is to this setup, and what would be the difference in performence.

Thank you

  1. The money would be best spent elsewhere. It might be worth it on an AMD system, but for core 2 duo it makes for a truly pathetic increase in real world apps.

    Read this pithy summary from Anandtech:

    Get the cheapy OCZ, if I were you. It is important that the memory is stable.
