none of those are the best. If you want top knotch OC'ing then you want


G.Skill LA's (very expensive at about $300)
OCZ Platinum Rev 2 (about $275)
Patriot XBL (about $225)
PQI Turbos (also about $225 I believe)

Those will OC way better than any of the ones you listed up there although mushkin is generally a good OC'er they tend to require a lot of voltage through them

BTW: The above prices are for 1gb

If it is socket 754 which I think it is it does NOT support dual channel. That doesn't mean though you couldn't run 512x2 rather than 1gx1

oh and one more thing: other than corsair and mushkin, what other cost efficient brands are good at overclocking? how about OCZ and PQI?

Both OCZ and PQI are listed there and as I said are the top OC'ers, those are for 1gb so for that cheaper range just get 2x256 then.

TwinMOS has 1gb for $108 and can OC like beasts, but again it will require generaly 3.2+v dimm to get them nice and high
