OR
2Gb OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 (5-5-5-12) Gold XTC Dual Channel kit
OR
2Gb OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 (5-5-5-12) Special OPS Edition Dual Channel Kit
OR
2Gb OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 ATI CrossFire (4-4-4-12) Dual Channel kit
OR

OR
2Gb OCZ DDR2 PC2-8000 (4-4-4-15) Titanium Alpha VX2 Dual Channel
OR

Get any of the DDR 2 1000 sets, then you don;t exactly need to worry about OC'ing them.

Not really heard any good things about OCZ RAM, they generally OC like turd

But i've seen alot of people use the Platinum XTC's so that must be a good sign.

I'm thinking about 2Gb DDR2 PC2-8500 1066MHz OCZ SLI Nvidia XTC Dual Channel kit. They are quite cheap, nvidia SLI Certified... and they look cool with the nvidia sticker thingy

My vote goes for the Reaper as well; the heat spreaders are better on those and if you plan to OC them they might do better than the other ones that all share the same HS.

Btw, if your goal is to overclock, get some G.Skill...
