I'm building a i7 920 system.

Currently I had planned on: G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6820231335

The timings on this memory are 7-8-7-24-2N

I'm now looking at: OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3P1600LV6GK
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6820227381

The timings on this memory are 7-7-7-24

In addition the OCZ memory is 1.65 Volts and the G Skill is 1.5

Would all this mean that for $20 more the OCZ will out perform the G Skill?

Is the OCZ memory the best option ?

^Agreed. Plus the lower voltage stock voltage of the G.Skill will allow you to lower the timers on your own or increase the frequency of the ram when OCing.
