Default RAM... wth?

Whilst on tech-forums i've always been told to go for Corsair or OCZ. However, one person told me that gaming RAM is overrated and Crucial is the best to buy for anything and especially good for OCing? So what's the deal?

Corsair ram is solid, but not for overclocking. I used to have Corsair XMS XL, and it sucks for the price.

Any ram should be fine if you aren't overclocking to be honest, Corsair ValueRam is perfect for the normal user. Never touched crucial/

Patriot's got some pretty good deals. They're between value RAM and performance RAM from what I hear.
