Well, you can't really go wrong with g.skill but this particular set is cheaper, looks better and has WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY better timings than King Sasquatch set.... do I need to say more?

Keep in mind that the set that King Sasquatch mentions is of higher frequency, a must if overclocking. It will give much more headroom and you won't have to use big dividers when overclocking. Timmings may not be as good, but chances are that in order to overclock those PC3200 you will have to loosen the timmings. I have the PC4000 ones and they are great, specially for the price (possibly the cheapest set of 2x1Gb at the moment). I'm able to do 280MHz at 2.8V with 3-4-4-8 timmings. At the moment I have them running 260MHz with 3-4-4-8 1T at 2.5V, impressive if you ask me. Not saying you will be able to clock the same, but this should give an idea of their performance. I also should add the the lowest timmings I can get are 2.5-3-3-6 at 200MHz, so if running stock the PC3200 set may be better.

Edit: They are cheaper too. I don't believe in rebates (major scam if you ask me) and prefer a REAL discount
