Well if you are prototyping, make sure that you get the DIP packages, and not SOIC, QFD or other surface mount chips.
That should cut your choice down dramatically, since the majority arent DIP ive noticed.

If you don't know the difference between DIP and SOIC, you should probably stop worrying about getting free stuff that will be most likely useless to you, and start doing some reading on electronics and microcontrollers and such.

There have been many references to such reading material posted in this forum over the past couple weeks.
