Default Best RAM to OC (PC3200)

Hi,

What is the best RAM for overclocking (PC3200). I have been looking at Patriot, Crucial and Corsair. Also can I use PC3500, PC3700 or PC4000?

If I can only afford 1GB of high quality RAM as opposed to 2GB of ValueRAM should I get 2 x 512, or 1 x 1GB?

Any specific models that are good?

Thank you for your time and advice.

OCZ and G.Skill brands are well known for OCing. If you are going for 1gb ram go for 2x512mb, because it will perform better and faster then 1x1gb.
