    GSkill with Asus P6X58D MB...

    Deciding on components for next rig...

    Comp is strictly for gaming... I will do moderate to aggressive overclock w/ air-cooling with a i7-920 and Asus P6x58. Will get the new Fermi or the ATI 5970.

    Which GSkill mem to get?
    Asus P5B-D (rev 1.04g, bios 1237)

    GTX 280 | 4 gig G Skill 8800 at PC2-667
    Intel x25G2 SSD | PCP&C 610W | Win7 64 bit

    So, the memory in the second Newegg link would OC better? Or, would be more stable, if I were OC'ing the i7-920 to @ 4.2ghz or so?

    Well, it gives you more flexibility, but you may not need it if you're aiming for 4.2GHz. Since it is already a higher speed, you can overclock it beyond it's rated DDR3-2000 while you can't with the DDR3-1600. But like I said, if you're overclocking the CPU that much, you probably wouldn't be running the memory at DDR3-2000+ anyway.
