Default What 2x1GB kit should I get? DDR400

I"m looking to buy the best 2X1GB kit for OCin'. Any recommenations?

I've got my eye on this:

Cost isn't a factor.

Have you considered OCZ gold or platinum, Crucial Ballistix, or Corsair XMS?

I have that g.skill RAM and it does work on 2.5-3-2-0 timings. I havent been able to overclock it past 215MHz though...... Could be that im somewhat of a noob and all.

I think that G.Skill is still the best OCing ram out there. If i had enough money to get it i would but im pretty much stuck w/ valueRAM till i get paid more.

G.Skill has the best 2x512 RAM, however I think OCZ makes the best 2x1GB RAM. the top 2x512 sticks have TCCD's, but you can't use TCCD's in 1GB sticks, because they aren't big enough (capacity)

FYI you don't want an expert board...they have a problem with dying very quickly and taking something with them
