Default Which RAM?

Which of these RAM would be best for a new conroe build? Will most likely be using a P965.

Mushkin
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146673

Super Talent
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820609026

Corsair
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145034

Also the P965 has recommended timings in specs of 5-5-5 or 6-6-6, does that mean that I can manually retime any of these ram to make them work if they don't work at lower timings?

Thanks,
Jake

well looking at the timing the Super talent one seems to be the best. But I've heard about the brand only a few times, so can't say much about it. But both corsair and mushkin are excellent brands. And if u are going to buy now, you are going to get nice rebates with both corsair and musḧkin. So it's a really hard decision. All of those seem to be very very good. But personally, I'd go with the corsair.
