If its the same price, I'd get the Geil Black Dragon ram. It nothing else, it looks nicer and has a great name.

In either case you should check the QVL compatible memory on the manufacturers website and try to get RAM that is on the list. Understand that the 2G packs have additional numbers and letters on the model number. Here is the Gigabyte list motherboard_memory_ga-p31-ds3l_1.0.pdf . I'm using Crucial Ballistix 2GB DDR2 800 on a P35-DQ6 and it works flawlessly.

Well, Kingmax is 1066 on default, with 1.8V (I believe) - that looks promising. Others could probaly be OC-ed to that speed, but would need more voltage.
But in the end, I don't think it makes much difference.

so 1066mhz for Kingmax worth more than the Geil Kit's CL4 timeing insted of CL5?

Kingmax probably can also do 4-4-4-12 or better at 800MHz...
Do you intend to run FSB synchronously with the memory (1:1)?
If so, latencies may be more important for you.
There is a nice article about frequencies vs. latencies at http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/memory/display/core2du...

DDR2 800 doesnt have much difference with DDR2 1066 so go with the
DDR2 800 RAM which has lower timings(Geil 2048MB 800MHz Black Dragon Dual)
