Which ram do you think i shud buy out of the following?

I have an asus a8v rev2 mobo. My fsb is currently running at 270mhz and htt at 5x.

So i a) need ram that is compatible with my board and b) need ram that will run as high as or as close as 270mhz fsb on a 1:1 ratio. i am currently using ddr2100 running at 173mhz (346mhz ddr).

option 1: geil 1gb (2 x 512mb) pc4000 ultra platinum cas2.5 (glgb4000dc) £135

option 2: corsair 1gb (2 x 512mb) xms3200c2 Pro Twinx Cas2 £161

option 3: corsair 1gb (2 x 512mb) xms3200xl Platimun Twinx Cas2 SAMSUNG TCCD's! £176

I know option 3 is most likely going to give me the best o/c but is it likley to be that different to the geil ram which is rated at pc4000 and £40 cheaper!

Can anyone who has this mobo please also post what ram they are currently using and at what speed they are running it. An also if there is ram that they advise that i shud definately not get for this mobo.
