I hear the Ballistix are better, but are these OCZ sticks good as well?

A LITTLE spendy, but well worth it.

Would rather save the $70 through TD. I bought from there before and didn't have much of a problem, besides for the rebates taking 3-4 months to arrive.

Are the OCZ's god though, or don't even compare to the Ballistix? Thanks again

This isn't for my current PC. I'm building a C2D next month, so starting to buy some of the stuff now as I see them. So just trying to see how these two compare to each other, or better yet, if the OCZ even compares to the Ballistix.

Ballistix 100% over those OCZ. I like OCZ just not those sticks.

Well I found a few OCZ sticks, ranging from 5-5-5-15 to 5-5-5-12. The Ballistix are 4-4-4-12 I believe. Reason I am considering OCZ is that I'm not sure I really want to deal with TigerDirects rebate over again, while the OCZ's rebate are straight from OCZ. I'd rather deal with OCZ as a company then Onrebate.com, which isn't all to great.
