types of nails

I'm going to build my own garage and need to know what type of nails to use. Do i use galvanized nails where I nail the studs to the treated sill and common or coated when nailing regular studs together or to the top plate.

Pressure treated lumber requires hot dipped galvanized or stainless steel fasteners.

If you think you can, or if you think you can't, you're probably right.
