Default Which ram sticks?

I've narrowed my choices down to either

Patriot Extreme Performance DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) (2x1gb)

or this company i haven't heard of before, Team Xtreem.

same type of ram, DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) (2x1gb)

the reviews on Newegg are excellent for Team Extreem ram and they all say that they are great for overclocking.



So which brand is better? More reliable? Better for overclocking?

Heh the tracers are the same price as the regular ballistix. Unless you are dead set on going through newegg you can get the tracers cheaper at frys.com usually.
