Default Wanted: Cheap stable fast RAM

I need some cheap reliable, possibly future overclocking ram (well, it needs to be know for running stable at 400mhz.)

Value Ram will work just fine - just need to get a little insight on what exactly to buy.

Looking for:
256MB modules
3200 (DDR-400)
under 40-50$ prefrebly, can go over.
Known to work with NF7 (non-S) if it makes any difference.

Must be nice and reliable... Corsair? Geil? Crucial? Mushkin? Good brands please!

All Suggestions welcome. I'm under a tight budget for this system, as always...

For a budget you should go with generic RAM.. just make sure it supports your chipset.
