What is the absolute best chain I can buy?

So long story short, I bought a cheap chain and sprocket set for my 400EX last January and three months later, the chain is worn out. I need something that will last awhile, what do you guys recommend I buy? Also, will I need to change the sprockets on it again since the ones it has are so new?

DID makes really good stuff. X-ring is a good one they make. You should be ok with your sprockets.

Regina is my chain of choice, although DID and Tsubaki are good chains also. Just steer clear of RK. I used to swear by them, but two broken chains in four races made me think otherwise.

Got the new DID chain in today, going to install this weekend. Hope my existing sprockets hold out for the summer at least, that way I can save up and buy a sidewinder chain and sprocket set next; those are the best of the best from what I've read and the price tag conveys it. Darn near 400 bux for the whole set when you factor in shipping and handling.
