Default Rank my rams

So I have 3 2x1gb rams, I'm trying to decide which to put into what build, so want to know which are the best performers. these are the rams that I have:

Crucial Rendition 2x1gb PC2-6400 800MHz 1.8V CAS6
G.Skill 2x1gb DDR2-800
OCZ Special Ops 2x1GB DDR2 800

Are they all pretty much the same?

Pretty much no differences if you plan to run them at stock.

But if one of those sets are micron and can hit 1K mhz it would be an easy pick.

OCZ is picky with many boards. I'd rank them last and G.Skill 1st.

Branding shouldn't be an issue.... As long as it works you should be fine with either one. Or just use the ones with the shortest timing for best performance for running stock.
