I was just going to ask both of you why you went with the optima brands.  They're pretty expensive from what I've seen.  Are they really worth the difference?

They were junk for a while. But as I've been told, since Johnson controls bought the brand the quality is back. I had a yellow top that died in just over a year. (Of course warranty was one year) Was looking at different brands to buy, but after talking with a few people I trust I bought the red top I currently have. So we'll see. The warranty is way better at 5 years!
But like VANR says, just buy a good gel (AGM) type as big as you can fit with the best amp hour rating possible. Check with advanced Auto. They have pretty good deals from time to time. I bought my RT for $150 using store discounts, then got a $50 factory rebate after that.
