Default Which Ram should i get. ASAP plz

This:
NCIX.com - Buy Buffalo Firestix FSX1066D2C-K4G 4GB 2X2GB PC2-8500 DDR2-1066 240PIN DIMM Dual Channel Memory Kit - FSX1066D2C-K4G In Canada.

Or this:
Mushkin XP PC2-8000 Redline 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-1000 CL5-5-5-12 240PIN Dual Channel Memory Kit - DirectCanada

Im looking at it from a price/performance. My ddr2800mhz is holding back my OC bigtime so i need something better

On this forum it's gonna be Mushkin. It's cheaper and "better."

Since many have mushkin ram , it gives a good base of what they can do.
Redlines at that price are a steal

They're popular on this forum, and for good reason. For myself, I've got four different rigs running Mushkin sticks. I'm generally pretty brand-agnostic, but for the complete lack of problems and headaches I've gotten, my future memory purchases are also going to be Mushkin until given reason otherwise. I create enough reasons for my computers to crash, without my hardware helping me out.

I think the Price Match only works if the other store has it in stock.
