Default best 2gb memory kits

Im looking to upgrade to 2gigs of memory soon and I was wondering what kit do you think I should get that isnt too expensive. Like I dont really want to spend more then $250
Here's what I was thinking

G.SKILL Extreme Series 2GB (2 x 1GB)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231032

or maybe if I can sell the memory I have right now I could get two sets of these
G.SKILL 1GB (2 x 512MB)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Custra...82E16820231013

As you can probably guess I want some good overclocking memory so thats why I was looking at g.skill. What are your suggestion for new memory?

2x http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227208

Those are great. If they are too expensive then there is the ddr400 version of the same ram which is a little cheaper.

Crucial doesn't sell 2gb sticks, but they sell 1gb x 2 kits for 2gb total. The RAM modules they use are the most exclusive RAM modules that Micron won't ever sell them to any company. That's how good they are.

Just so you know, Crucial is a division of Micron.

Well my motherboard wouldnt work with 2gb sticks anyway.

EDIT: Well I was reading the reviews on newegg and it sounds kinda scary. I dont think I would want to spend that much and have to take the risk of it not working. I really wouldnt want to have to got throught the whole RMA process. Although this memory looks really good.
