I'm finally building my C2D rig next week and had planned on some plain ol' OCZ DDR2 800 but now that the 680i supports up to 1200MHz Mem Bus I am not sure what to do. Can anyone recommend the best 2Gb (2X1Gb) EPP RAM for under $400. Would super high quality DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) serve me better than some mid-high quality PC2 8500?

I've looked through the EVGA memory support thread: http://www.evga.com/community/messageboard/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=21137
But have not been able to find half of the RAM listed for sale online.

Links are appreciated :D

Thanks,
Burner

If I were you I would go with (PC2 6400) 4.4.4.12 timing, unless you are deciding to overlook the machine like crazy.
