i see your point. but it's actually not 10-20$ more expensive. it's more like 5$ according to the shop i use.
you can buy even cheaper RAM with 1333mhz and 1066mhz but then Latency goes up and less quality heat pipes (or no heat pipes at all).

Good choices so far, except I'd get the DDR3 1600 memory. Couple questions: Do you plan on getting a separate video card? If so, you might need a higher wattage PSU depending on your choice. How do you plan to backup your HDD?

Rules for HDDs and especially SSDs:
1. Backup
2. Backup
3. Backup dammit!

I believe you are correct. The internal controller in the series run at 1600Mhz per the Intel white papers I've seen. Also the controller itself is rather robust, and can handle 1866MHz, and 2100 as well.

Some are only $5 more, it depends on the make.

There's no point in spending the extra buck when you don't have to.

Nothing wrong with those choices; however, please answer my previous questions:
