With the after-Christmas sales,there are quite a few memory options and I have no idea which one to choose and which one is the most worthwhile.

I'm choosing between Corsair and OCZ ram because of their reputation as good manufacturers. I am NOT overclocking, and I am looking for stability first and then value. I will be running Vista 64bit and will need ddr2-800. I am not sure which is better, 2x2gb or 4x1gb for stability at stock speeds.

Here are the choices and the deals that I am getting

OCZ Platinum XTC Rev.2 DDR2-800 2x1gb 4-4-4-15. = $31 x 2 = $62
OCZ Platinum XTC DDR2-800 2x2gb 5-4-4-15 = $90
Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X4096-6400C5 ddr2-800 2x2gb 5-5-5-18 = $130.

Any help would be great thanks.

Get the 2x2GB kit of XTC if you want to add more later, otherwise go with the 4x1GB arrangement.
