$85 regular price for them. Yet the 6400's are $115 regular. What's up with that?

It really depends on what processor you want to run. For me since I'm going to be running an E8400 it will give me more OCing headroom without having to overclock the ram.

Then you may want to get the set that I'm getting. What version of Windows will you be running? If you will be running a 64-bit version then you may want to pick up these. G.SKILL F2-8000CL5D-4GBPQ PC2-8000 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-1000 CL5-5-5-15 240PIN Dual Channel Memory Kit - $119.88

Nice find. A friend of mine is running G.Skills and he likes them. What mobo are you going to be using? If you haven't picked on yet. I highly recommend the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L it's an awesome OCer. But you'll want to get a 40mm fan for the Northbridge as it does tend to run hot when upping the FSB.

I looked at those. Had them on my list in fact. However, I'm not going to be running a 64-bit OS. At least in the short term anyway. Thus,I decided to remove them. It that damn budget thing.
