Which memory

My bro's gonna upgrade his comp. His freind is giving him a 1800+. I'm suggesting an ASUS A7N8X, cause he's gonna upgrade to a 2500+ latter on. I'm planning to to oc' the 2500+ to 200MHz FSB. He ordered an ThermalRight ALX-800. I just need the RAM now, and I don't know which to get. Cost is a factor. He doesn't want to spend extra money for expensive low latency overclockable memory. CAS 2.5 pc3200 would be good to get now since he's gonna upgrade to a barton later. I don't want cheap stuff either. I would also like to be able to get this all from NewEgg, unless someone else has a good deal. I mainly need help with deciding what brand to get.


This is what I found that looks good to me so far. 256mb pc3200, all are free shipping.

I didn't check prices, but I'd say the Corsair or the Mushkin.
