    Hi,
    I would like some help with memory selection.
    My chosen motherboard is Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 for Coure Duo E4300.

    My question is not about compatibility, since the sticks are compatible based on Gigabyte's website.
    I just wanted to know the difference between the various Corsair 2gb XMS2 models. I'm a newbie regarding RAM and do not really know a lot about voltage or latency. Most of the guides I found about memory selection are quite outdated.

    Basically, I narrowed it down to 3 models. I have decided to go with Corsair, since they have good reputation, but I'm not sure which one should I go for:

    1) Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400 Matched Pairs 2GB Kit (2x1GB) PC6400 DDR2-800
    CL 5-5-5-12 240-pin Dual Channel Memory
    ($139.99 CAN)

    2) Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400C5DHX Matched Pairs 2GB Kit (2x1GB) PC6400
    DDR2-800 CL 5-5-5-18 240-pin Dual Channel DHX Memory
    ($159.99 CAN)

    3) Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400C4 Matched Pairs 2GB kit (2x1GB) PC6400 DDR2-800 CL 4-4-4-12 240-pin Dual Channel Memory ($168.99 CAN)

    My hunch tells me to go with the 3rd choice, since its more expensive!?
    But my system won't be high end. As for overclocking, it might be an option, possibly in a
    year's time.

    Help would be nice.
    Thanks!
