Default Which ram ???????

I have an Asus P5AD2E premium board and 630j processor and 6600gt Leadtek
Its a new rig and i m yet to buy a Ram

Its a little hard to select so i need a little help.
These r the ones i ve seen

Corsair PC4200 Value select 1024 mb kit (512*2) 1149 kr


Corsair Value S. PC5300 DDR2 1024MB Kit w/two matched Value Select 512MB 1449 kr

Corsair TWIN2X 5400 DDR2, 1024MB PC5400 Kit w/two matched CM2X512-5400C4 Dimm's 1719 Kr


Kingston DDR2 HyperX PC5400 512MB CL4 Kit w/two matched HyperX 256MB DDR2 1449 kr

Now i m quite confused about all these Rams . I m not a big overclocker but i will overclock occasionally and i want good performance within a budget. and these were the best choices i could find here in Sweden.
Or maybe someone else can come up with a better choice.

Well, I'd personly, out of those, go for this one:

Corsair TWIN2X 5400 DDR2, 1024MB PC5400 Kit w/two matched CM2X512-5400C4 Dimm's 1719 Kr
This is because it's one of the fastest in your list, you're getting 1GB of memory for your money; plus its Corsair!

Although, in saying this; the HyperX Kingstom DIMMs do have a high reputation for good over-clocking. But, as you can see, you only get 512MB of memory for only a little less than you can get 1GB of memory with the Corsair DIMMs.

But, it's your decision!

personally I'd get G.Skill RAM with Samsung TCCD's. without cooling it can reach DDR600 guaranteed. it does depend on the CPU though if it can hit a 300MHZ FSB stable
