Default Ram for Conroe computer?

Hi. I am in the proccess of buying parts for my new computer that I am putting together for college and can't seem to chose what ram to get. I will be overclocking but not a huge amount. While this will be a conroe computer, I do not know what motherboard I will be getting as they aren't out for another two weeks. Here are the ones I have found so far:

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit System Memory

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145590

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit System Memory

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231065

OCZ Gold 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit System Memory

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227030

Which one do you think is best or is there a better option? I don't want to spend a lot more than $200 unless you think it is worth it.

Thanks,
-Grog

Out of all the ones you listed, the G.SKILL has the lowest latency.. I had seen someone posting here saying that G.SKILL is good memory for overclocking...

Personally, I would go Corsair, but thats just me.

Cas 4 DDR2-800 for less than $200. Great deal right now.

Thanks for the fast replies. The reviews for the G.SKILLs you posted mentioned that these are intel only so will they work on any board meant for the conroe no matter what company makes the board? Sorry for the stupid question but I need to make sure before I buy these! Thanks

Personally, I would go with OCZ, which are a little easier to overclock and don't require as much voltage when doing so as G.SKILL ram.
