Depending on how good you are with rebates, there's one kit for $161 shipped ($131 after rebate), and another for $175 shipped ($155 after rebate).

what about this?

I wouldn't worry too much about newegg comments.

As for the RAM itself, Dominators are good sticks but in my opinion overpriced.

Note that the set you linked is only 3GB as well. I'd still go with one of the two 6GB kits I listed.

And yes, your board should have no problem with 1600 speed.
