Default 2 x 4gb RAM

I have a n68-s motherboard, I need 2 x 4GB non-ecc un-buff mem sticks and $100 to spend, link to my motherboard here. I prefer to buy it on amazon as I have a $50 card but I have looked for a while and though I have learned a lot about ram in the process, I have bought and sent back two separate stick bundles and can't seem to find what I need for a non ridiculous price. Any help would be appreciated.

Good luck finding 8GB of DDR2 for real cheap. Find the cheapest 8GB 667MHz kit you can find and get it.

I see 8gb ddr3 all over the place for less than $50 and all sorts of junk under $100 i wouldn't consider $100 cheap for some ram. Is this dis-continued or something why does it not exist...?

DDR3 has been around for years, and yes DDR2 is discontinued. That is why it's so expensive and why I said good luck finding it so cheap. Your best option is to find some used.
