OCZ is SLI approved + timing is 5-4-4-15 while your choice is 5-5-5-15 and mine is cheaper due to the rebate.

Other than that, will they all be compatible with another and fit in both chassis?

Are you going to run Vista? If not get a better 2 gig set of RAM. All these are SLI/EPP and considerably faster. The Dominators will OC circles around the OCZs.

I approve of the Xigmatechs =) I found them very nice, You should also pick up a lapping kit if your gonna go that far with the builds though. You lap the CPU as laid out in the multiple guides here. And you can smooth out the bottom of the Xigma using 1000,1500,2000 grain papers (and 2500 if your crazy =)) There was a polished up pic around here somewhere, lemme see if I can edit it in.

Those are nice, but are 1 GB per stick. Would it still be a good idea to get those instead of the 2GB per stick? (The timings are nice for your choices too!)
I was looking at this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220144
Great deal, I will order two if it's worth it.

So, is having 4 1 GB sticks better than having 2 2GB sticks at that timing?
My timing: 5-4-4-15
Your timing: 4-4-4-12

I'm thinking yes.... cause it's the same price after rebate! Should I get?

Ah, I heard about lapping. I saw the guide here on this site.
Can you recommend me a good lapping kit?

I can indeed!

Great price and everything you need, Just double check the surface to make sure it's 100% flat before starting, would hate for some warped piece to ruin a great lap =)

Btw, Found that pic of the lapped Xigmatech in case you were worried about sanding those copper pipers, TheCh3f did it to his setup:



Here is his thread in case you want some lapping tips from him as he's the first I've seen on the site to do a HDT Heatsink.
