Default RAM for overclocking to 600MHz

Almost have my PC finalized. Need a bit of help on the RAM.

Someone told me this:
If you want to hit DDR600, get G.Skill RAM. it is guaranteed to get at least that under 2.5-4-4-8 timings, and at 2.7 to 2.9 volts

Now I cant get G.skill but I can get Ultra, OCZ, GeIL, Kingston, Corsair and Crucial.

I have the DFI Lanparty NF4 UT SLI-DR Board + AMD 64x2 4200

Do I have to buy RAM with that specific timing or just set whatever RAM I purchase to those settings?

Also do I buy the DDR400 or since I want to accomplish 600MHz go for the DDR500-DDR550 ( obviously more money )

Can I get 600MHz from a good DDR400 Ram or do I NEED the 500-550 stuff?

Last question, thanks for patience... Board supports Dual Channel Ram.. I understand that would be the better type for what I am doing or no?

Thanks for your help and RAM choice Selections.

Why can't you get G.Skill? If you've been looking for it they just got some in at newegg.com.
