I still have yet to order my memory and motherboard yet. What would be my best option for gaming with my new Sandy Bridge processor? Here's what I'm looking at.

Corsair Vengeance (2gbx2, cas 8, 1600mhz) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-147-_-Product

Corsair Vengeance (4gbx2, cas 9, 1866mhz) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-142-_-Product

Mushkin Redline (2gbx2, 6cas, 1600mhz) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-120-_-Product

What do you think of these kits? Is there something else I should look at?

Ultimately, Mushkin Redline would be the best. However, I would take 8GB over 4GB any day if you're not benching.

Newegg has Corsair 4GB Vengeance sticks for $57 shipped. They should easily overclock to the same speed and timings as the kit that you linked.

I'm not benching. I just want the best performance for the price.

My suggestion with the Corsair sticks still stands. Alternatively, you can get either of these kits by G.Skill - Link 1 / Link 2.

Go with the cheapest one. You won't notice a difference unless you do a lot of benching, which you said you don't.
