I'm not sure what i should go for in ram though. I'm going to be over clocking so i am going for good timings. This is what i'm looking at atm.

Which would be the better choice? I was thinking the mushkin because of timings but i would also end up loosing 2 gigs.

AMD 955 is better choice than 965 cause its almost the same speed, for less money. 965 is basically overclocked 955.
about the ram, the mushkin is 3x2GB triple channel, but u need dual channel for your rig. this are nice deals:

i dont think u need more than 4 GB, also keep in mind that u can get slower 1600MHz memory, and increase the timing and voltage manualy.
