I'm trying to stay on budget with 150-175 for memory. I don't know if lower are better or 9-9-9-24 for example is better so here are my choices:

I'd either go for the Black Line's or the PIs.

With the the advent of the integrated memory controller, frequency > latency; however the CAS 7 sets are the same price or less anyway.
You'll also be able to OC them pretty well just by loosening the timings up

I'd go with the PI series for price/performance those PI series OC very well and the Corsair doesn't have good times.

The Mushkin Blackline and the Gskill PIs look Excellent.

I personally own a 3 Gigs kit of Mushkin Blackline 1600 8-8-8-24 @ stock and it overclocks very well, also low voltage, so I can recommend it based on my personal experience (also, the blacklines you're looking at are better than mine so you're supposed to get great performance) but the Gskills look very good too.

I dont think the Corsair can really match those two
