Default Best Value RAM

Hi All,

This is my planned rig, hopefully I'll be building it within the next 2 weeks. And no, I know full well about Conroe, so don't tell me to wait for it! I'm on a very tight budget, stretching it with this PC as is! So here goes:

MSI K8N Neo4-F

AMD X2 3800+

Leadtek 7900GT

Maxtor 250GB HDD

Coolermaster Centurion Case

Hiper 530W PSU

Now, my question is this: What would be good Value RAM for a bit of overclocking? I know value and overclocking aren't synonimous, but there has to be value RAM that can handle a little bit of overclocking. I don't mind using a divider to make it easier for the RAM, but I don't want them to crash at a 201MHz HTT.

Your advice is greatly appreciated!

AMD64 X2 4400+
DFI Lanparty Ultra-D
2GB Kingston Hyper-X (2-3-2-6)
TT Big Typhoon
eVGA 7900GT KO Superclocked (650/1650)
250GB Maxtor DiamondMax SATA2 HDD
Hiper Type-R 580W SLi PSU
19" Sony Trinitron CRT

Corsair Valueselect kicks anus. I had mine @ 233 2.5-4-3-8 and a 1T command rate running with 2.8V, very nice for the price that I paid. BTW that's a pretty nice setup. That's basically what I'm building.

I'd vote Corsair Valueselect as well, heard good things, plus Corsair is a great brand anyways.

The Corsair Valueselect (as the two above have said) never failed me and was pretty darn fast.
