Default Want to buy 4 GB DDR2 6400

Hey yo,

I am doing a low cost upgrade and I need some DDR2 for the new mobo (XFX 680i SLI). My buddy was going to sell me 4x1GB Corsair but he scoffed at the prices of replacing his sticks with new ones. I too was suprised to see how much the price has gone up in recent months so I'm just posting here to see if anyone has a recommendation. I've mostly been looking at 4-4-4-12 timings. I will have all the parts except for this RAM by Monday, but it's not rush-rush, so I am okay with ordering it online from one of the various retailers.

As I live in Edmonton, my best bet for price appears to be 2x2GB Patriot:
Patriot Extreme Performance Viper Series DDR2 4GB (2 x 2GB) PC2-6400 Low Latency Dual Channel Kit, SLI-Ready at Memory Express Computers

I also like a Crucial set but they have no stock:
CRUCIAL Ballistix 4GB PC2-6400 Dual Channel DDR2 Kit (2 x 2GB) at Memory Express Computers

Newegg.ca has some Pi G-Skill which I think would be the optimal item:
Newegg.ca - G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL4D-4GBPI-B - Desktop Memory

I don't think I'll be doing any overclocking or anything like that, just want it to work well right away.

I am open to buying used, but I can't seem to find any local.
