i agree with the ddr800 xms2 corsair.
I got a pair of 2gb from newegg, but one stick was dead on arrival. I'm rma'ing it as we speak lol.

One thing with the p5b deluxe -> ram compatability.
You will probably need to update your bios to support the DDR2 800 ram. I had to update mine on my p5b-e.

So if you have, lets say a 667 or a 400 stick of ram, use that, update the bios, then you can install your 800 and it should post fine.

I got the e6700 processor and it works fine w/ the p5b board and the ddr2 800 ram2gb. As well as the 7900 gs ko i'm running.

The cpu is running at about 58C idle, which seems hot, but not too bad, and the gpu is running at 48C idle, in my apevia aspire case. 2 case fans, exhaust for the heatsink, and 2 intakes up front by the HD.
