Building an intel based rig (E6600, P5W DH Deluxe) for my cousin and would appreciate advice regarding ram choices. All below are in the same general range of price so not relevant:

OCZ 2G (2 x 1GB) PC2-6400 Special Ops Edition
OCZ2SOE8002GK, 2.3V Max, 5-5-5-12 Timings (what I have in my rig)

OCZ DDR2 PC2-7200 2GB kit (2x1024) Dual channel Special Ops Edition 900MHz; OCZ2SOE9002GK, 5-5-5-15 Timings, 2.3V Max

Corsair TWIN2X1024-8500, 2.2V Max, 5-5-5-15 Timings

OCZ 2G (2 x 1G) PC2-6400 Platinum Dual Channel
OCZ2P8002GK, 4-5-4-15 Timings, 2.3V Max (this is the cheapest)

He plans to overclock on air (most likely a big typhoon).

He already has an antec TP-II 550W Power supply and 7900gt video card.

So which offers the best performance at stock and overclocked?

They only differ in price by $60 from cheapest to most expensive and as such performance is the key.

Please no referrals to GSkill as we don't have a local supplier in Toronto!

Thanks

Amazing, I asked for no GSkill referrals and immediately got one, and for $660 ram, no less. The ram above ranges in price from $280 to $340 canadian. Also my cousin and I prefer to buy locally. All the above items can be bought (And returned if necessary to local stores). He and I both prefer OCZ or Corsair.
