Default OCZ, G.Skill or Mushkin?

To go with a PII 955 and MSI 790FX-GD70 will I better be off with ...

Mushkin XP3-12800 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1600 CL7-7-6-18 240PIN DIMM Dual Channel Memory Kit
OCZ Platinum OCZ3P16004GK 4GB DDR3 2X2GB DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 CL 7-7-7-24 Dual Channel Memory Kit
or some G.Skill ?

Money is not an issue (to a certain limit, meaning the Mushkins are still in my budget) and I will OC.

Thx!

The Mushkin 996601 is a very popular DDR3 kit, they work great in this mobo, make sure to use the outer(blue) memory slots.
BTW the pic is not correct, the heatspreaders are black, if you care about such things.

A few $ less at Canadacomputers.

The outer slots are tuned for higher memory speeds.
Most AM3 mobos are this way.
