I became a big fan of MicroCenter recently. They easily match and beat most of Newegg's prices. I don't even have to wait for it to ship either.

How do these two sets of RAM stack up against each other?

CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145232

G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231225

The G.SKILL ram is significantly cheaper, how much performance will I lose?

That rig looks great, i'm just so jealous the US get parts so much cheaper than we do. Plus so few big US names ship to the UK, even after our old alliances. Gosh!

I just went to their site, so many parts are so cheap now.
Makes me want to buy some new parts to improve my system, but... must... refrain... till.... new.... build.
But I should drop by there sometime and check out the store.

Sorry for getting off topic Thelis.

They had a bad reputation, which is understandable at times (sometimes they'll test Nvidia with 182.00 and ATi with Catalyst 8.5 or the other way around. They're not an enthusiasts site, that's the best explanation, I think.
