Choosing RAM

Hello, everybody - this is my first post.

Can I have some advice on which of the following DDR modules I should get? Unfortunately, some of the details are a bit sketchy on some of the generic RAM.
The prices are in UK sterling, but I've added some rough US$ equivalents.
Please don't bother to suggest Corsairs - whilst I'd like some, I'm not really much of an overclocker, so I don't really need it.

A) 512Mb PC2700 CL2.5 DDR at £50 (US$80)
B) 512Mb PC3200 CL2.5 DDR at £72 (US$115)
These are both generic types. The retailer claims they'll be major branded, but there aren't any more details. These are pretty much the cheapest prices I can find in the UK.

C)TwinMOS PC3200 DDR 512MB CL 2.5 w/Winbond at £85 (US$136)
D)TwinMOS PC2700 DDR 512MB CL2 at £66 (US$106)
Are TwinMOS modules any good? I haven't read much about their products.

E)Crucial 512MB PC2700 DDR CL2.5 at £100 (US$160)
F)Kingston 512MB PC2700 DDR CL2.5 at £90 (US$144)
Do these prices justify the quality? Or do they seem really expensive?

Pick from A-F. Thanks in advance.

Whilst it seems like quite a good time for buying RAM, does anyone think that RAM prices will fall much further?

Hi. It really pisses me when anyone(especially a newcomer)can't get a reply to their post.

While I may be wrong, I would go with crucial or kingston. I like crucial myself.

Are you using the memory selector for your mainboard when you get prices at crucial or kingston?.
