  • Corsair TWIN3X2048-1800C7DFIN G Dominator DDR3 7-7-7-20 2x1024MB 1800MHz DHX Heat Spreader <-- 30-40$ cheaper

    other specs are gonna be:

  • Asus P5E3 DELUXE/WIFI-AP iX38 4DDR3-DIMM 2PCI 4PCIe SATA Raid Audio DUAL GB-LAN WiFi-AP Firewire Socket775 ATX
  • Intel Core 2 QUAD Q6700 2.66GHz 8MB FSB1066 Boxed (with cpu-cooler!) Socket 775

    The CORSAIR one has better timings but the difference between them(the timings) arent much, so i say go for the one which is cheaper as MrsBytch said

    This looks like an easy pick to me, buy the Corsair. I've used both Corsair and OCZ and like them both, so I've no bones to pick. Cheaper price and better timings make Corsair the number one, here.
