Looking to upgrade a couple things on my computer. One thing is ram. Will be placing on an AM3 board paired with a AMD Phenom ii x4 955 BE. Trying to decide between three types of ram

1. Kingston ValueRAM DDR3 1333Mhz, 1x4Gb, timings are 9-9-9-27, $24.99

2. Kinston Hyper X Blu DDR3 1333Mhz, 1x$gb, timings are 9-9-9-27, $27.97

3. Mushkin Silverline DDR3 1600Mhz, 2x2Gb, timings are 7-10-10-24, $27.99 -> $17.99 after rebate

4. G. Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1333 Mhz, 2x2Gb, timings are 9-9-9-24, $29.99

All of the ram sport 1.5v rating except for the Mushkin which is 1.65. I am trying to keep it under $30 if possible, however, if I can't I'll probably opt out for the G.Skill Ripjaws 1600Mhz for an extra 5 bucks, but currently, I'm on a tight budget and with tax I may go over it xD Cheers mates and thnks for the replies :)

Mushkin Silverline DDR3 1600Mhz is good 7-10-10, you will get extra OC of ram ran faster than 1333 9-9-9-24

See, I thought in terms of performance there was not much difference, and since I seldom dare to overclock my ram, I guess the G.Skill is kinda a no brainer. I always use them for budget builds :)  Thanks for the replies guys :)
