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 Most of the guides I found about memory selection are quite outdated.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!
