overclockers.com did a comparison where they compared PC133 CL2 SDRAM from Crucial against PC150 ram to see which would overclock more. The crucial won. I think the same would probably hold true in the DDR world, too.

Another vote for Crucial. They also have excellent customer service, and if you even have a suspicion that the RAM is bad, they'll UPS you some more, without hesitation.
I've seen PC2100 CAS 2 as far as 160MHz FSB at CAS2, as well. You'd be quite hard pressed to find a motherboard (and PCI/AGP devices) that will allow you to go higher than that.

I was faced with the same delema Joe, after much deliberation and advice I finally ordered crucial pc2100 256mb x2 sticks ($80 USD total) from the USA to Australia , I stuffed up the order and called Crucial immediately. Their customer service was fantastic, very helpful and the shipment has arrived here within a week! The other alternative I considered was Corsair pc2400, besides having an outlet in Australia they had no stock and would take 3 weeks to ship. Corsair prices were twice as much as the Crucial DDR sticks and their customer service took two weeks to reply to my e-mail query.
If you can wait 24 hours I can tell you how overclockable Crucial is, I do not have it installed just yet but it will be soon.
It will be installed on a Epox 8K7A+ board and a T'bird 1.4 and an Enermax 430w psu ~ yadda yadda yadda, I will be trying for pc2400 spec's in stages.
That's great Scotty!
Please beam up the results as soon as they become available.

Ok I got to 10.5x145fsb(1.522Ghz) by disabling auto detect dimm/clk in bios but was a little un-stable. I tried at 12x140(1.680Ghz)with no result, too late at night to be doing this so I will have another go tomorrow.
