buy two of these kits for a total of 4*512MB for under 200

you wont be able to OC real well with 2GB so there is no need for expensive ram

I would get 2 1gb sticks. And get the cheapest you can get, as it will not affect the performance if you are not overclocking. If it is a choice between two lots, then choose on the timings. If they have the timings, go for the ones that look better. Mine came with metalic blue heatspreads.

the general guide is this:

Get a good name brand: OCZ, Corsair, Kingston, Mushkin
Get the fastest speed you can: DDR 466 or DDR 500 if your overclocking.
Get the lowest latency you can, the lowest latency you will ever find for DDR is 2-2-2-2.
Get matched pairs for Dual Channel, it just is more reliable and easier to manage.
