Poker Chip Denominations

What type of denominations should I get when playing small 4-5 player games. Chips I like come in 25c 50c 1 5 25 100 500... the Nevada Jack composites. Players would only risk $25 and under.
Looking at a 300 chip set.

Why waste your time w/ the denominations below $1.

The cards? So we can tell what the other players got, silly!

I love my NJ-composite 10g chips. I got 500 in the following breakdown:

20 50c
80 $1
150 $5
150 $25
100 $100

Works perfectly - can easily play tourney style with up to 8 people and then it works well for dealer-call games (generally play $1-2 antes with $10 max open and max raise). Got a small number of 50c chips in case someone wants to bank BJ or Pai Gow or something.
