Building a new system (probably Intel core2duo)...

I was considering these memory choices:

Mushkin XP2-8500 DDR2-1066 2x1GB Extreme Performance Series CAS 5-5-4-12
Crucial Ballistix (BL2KIT12864AA1065) DDR2 1066Mhz PC2 8500 2GB
Patriot Extreme Performance DDR2 2GB (2 x 1GB) PC2-8500 (PDC22G8500ELK)
OCZ (OCZ2N1066SR2GK) DDR2 PC2-8500 1066MHz NVIDIA SLI-Ready XTC Edition 2GB (2x1024MB)

I think all of these have the Micron chip.

Can anyone recommend one out of those? I researched and either sound okay but hopefully, there is a particular reason to choose one over the others. The prices are similar so it's just based on????

The Crucial is about $20 more than the others (priced within a few dollars of each other) but Crucial is known for very good memory.

Which should I choose?

Thanks for any advice and recommendations. I need to choose soon as the discounts might end by the end of the month?

"Get the Crucial's because they can do 1200mhz at only 2.2volts." Also they can do 1066 @ 4-4-4-12 @ 2.2 volts, or 800mhz @ 3-3-3-8 @ 2.2 volts. These sticks of ram are the best out there right now. "Get them and you'll be glad you did." I'm buying another 2 GB kit because rams so cheap.
