My main concern is the RAM. I chose it because it has low timings, but unfortunately it also has a lower frequency. On TH, it showed that timings are more important than frequency, and TH reccomnded that you buy the lowest timings available in a 1333 or 1066. I also like Mushkin RAM, and I don't know if I'm making a mistake by going with that particular type of G.skill RAM.
