I think so. They Redlines are great ram. A lot of people run them and have great results. Plus their support is top notch. We have one of their Reps as a member here Mushkin Greg and he if you need any assistance with your memory he will be able to assist you no problems. Give the board you are using and the memory and he'll give you the memory settings you need to enter in for your board.

Im just wondering if the redline be worth the extra 20$... I am not going to do loads and loads of overclocking... my plan is to overclock my e8400 around christmas time, when I will have enough to buy an aftermarket cooler. Will ddr3 be better bang for buck around christmas?

At this point is hard to say. With Nahalem (Core i7) coming out around the corner we really need to see how well it does.

Ahh, true. I think im just going to stay with the GSkill because id like to buy off Directcanada because of their 300$+ free shipping deal, and because my buddy just bought a rig from them and he said it was extremly smooth. The redline on Directcanada is an extra 25$ over the GSkill.

Looking good. Are you going to be building it yourself? If so create work log and take lots of pics. We like pics of new builds.

Everythings ordered... for some reason I am regretting getting the Centurion 5 when I could have gotten an Antec 900 for 30$ more... it has double the fans and looks 1000000% better... does anyone know of anywhere where they sell the side panels with windows on them for the centurion series? One of those will tide me over till my next build.

Buyers remorse
