Default 2 x 2GB RAM recommendations

well, i'm going to change one small tweak on my build. I want to go with 2GB RAM sticks, but I don't know what's good. Newegg has a few companies I have questions about. GeIL, PQI, and Wintec. I've never heard these names before. I'm currently looking at the Newegg.com - GeIL Evo One 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory , but wanted to go here before I finished my purchase. thanks for the help/advice! (also, are the crucial 2GB sticks as trustworthy as the 1GB's?)

I have the CAS4 reapers. I know there are 2x2 crucials out now.

I have these. Newegg.com - OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

I probably would have bought these if they were available when i got my 2x2 set.

I havent had any issues with them. I havent really tried pushing them, but they run perfectly stable and cool at 2.2v and 4-4-4-12 timings.

Reapers, ReaperX, PQ, all good stuff.

I just bought a cheap noname 2x2gb 6400 kit off ebay for 41 quid. looks like they use powerchip ICs from the pics, I'll see if they clock at all.

not worried about price right now. what is the listing from best to worst. *already heard some good stuff about the reapers so in consideration* OCZ Reaper, Crucial Ballistix, and G.Skill. Thanks for the input, I dunno if I'm going with a 2x2 or a single 2, and I'm looking at newegg right now. thanks again!

Edit: no news on the GeIL sticks?

Newegg.com - mushkin 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
CAS4@2.0V good price range, haven't really heard anything bad about mushkin, this may be my memory lol

also buying Thermalright HR-07 Memory Module Cooler (DDR1 & DDR2 / Single & Double Sided) - FrozenCPU.com so whatever heatsinks are on memory are automatically getting tossed or saved *knowing me saved lol* also, added.... 4-4-4-12!
