I've always been a G.Skill fan, so they get my vote. The Corsairs would be better but they are $30 more so it would be hard to compare those 2 sets. For instance these two G.Skills would compare better:

And which of those two would you get? Is 7 cas that much better than the 8 cas?

Ehh "that much better" is a very opinionated comment. To some its worth it, to some its not. If we are talking about gaming, then you would notice a very little difference, if any at all.

Yea that's what most people do and unless you have an abundance of money (in which case you should share) then thats what I'd suggest too.
