Good question =)

HF/6-31** and RESP doesn't really best choice :
cite : "Overall, however, we have found these charge models (ESP and RESP)
to be quite useful for modeling biomolecular systems. The alternatives
usually involve either (1) models such as Mulliken charges which do not
necessarily reproduce the molecular electrostatic potential or (2) empirically
derived charges such as those fit to reproduce interaction energies and
distances (CHARMM) or liquid properties (OPLS)."

As I noticed RESP charges for DNA/RNA is about twice bigger than OPLS
one. But in case of pure DNA/RNA md with RESP charges are good. But for
complexes i still have no pure answer. Something about CHELPG charges
for OPLS was mentioned above. You can find it in mail-list
