I can answer the second one but not the first i'm afraid.

The heat spreader is just there to slightly cool the RAM, yet, no performance gain will be made from having them.

The only time you may get a performance gain, is if you do an overclock. Of course, the heatspreader might cool the ram enough to do more of an overclock, than if say, RAM without.

So I'd go with one with a heatspreader just incase for that purpse, but no, you won't get a performance gain unless in these circumstances.

Also the Abit Fatal1ty is pretty rock solid, still I'd prefare the DFI one.

YES, that RAM seems great!

Yeah, that seems kewl I aso agree with the RAM make as it is very well respected, and if you do plan to overclock, i'd expect some good results usually. Plus the latency seems rather low too compared to some i've seen.
