I'm looking to buy some DDR2 for my upcoming Q6600-based rig now, because it looks like DDR2 prices have hit rock bottom and are starting to climb, and I want to save money. Which of the following 3 kits would be the best for the money? I'm in Canada, so I can't use Newegg, unfortunately.

Crucial Ballistix 4-4-4-12, $140:

Corsair XMS2 5-5-5-12, $150 - $30 rebate = $120:
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=18581&vpn=TWIN2X2048-6400&manufacture=CORSAIR

OCZ Platinum Rev. 2 4-4-4-15, $140 - $50 rebate = $90
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2882686&CatId=2368

Of the two rebates, I'm much less likely to ever see the OCZ rebate because of Tigerdirect, so please keep that in mind. I plan on overclocking the Q6600 to around 3 Ghz, and probably dropping a Penryn quad-core in once they come out, and I don't want to change the RAM then. Thanks for any help.

EDIT: I can also get the Crucial Ballistix sticks for $107 at Canada Computers, but they're out of stock. Also, they have the following kits:

Patriot Extreme Performace 4-4-4-12, $128 - $50 rebate = $78

Mushkin High Performance Series, 4-5-4-11, $133

If I were you I would get the Crucial Ballistix C4 for $70 After $45 rebate from Newegg. I just received mine today. It runs great by itself. I'm here because it is not playing nice with my Corsair C4. :(
