Question RAM Confusion!

some demystification and advice would be appreciated.
Plan for 2x2GB Ram modules PC6400 DDR2.
Options to choose between:
Patriot C4 Extreme Performance [4-4-12]:
£117
OCZ SLi approved [4-4-15]:
£80

There are also Corsair modules at the same prices [looking at Microdirect and Aria as they are local] as well as Patriot CL5 modules same price as the OCZ.

Which would you recommend and why?

Going into a GBX38 mobo with either E6750 or Q6600...
yes the OS will initially be XP Pro but I plan to switch to Vista 64 after Sp1 and would prefer to get matching dimms now...

The difference between 4-4-4-12 and 5-4-4-15 is very little to none, just buy the OCZ pair.
