Default My New Build! =D

I've got everything picked out and 90% done. So far:

CPU: Core 2 Extreme QX6850
MOBO: Asus P5N-D
HDD: 2x 250Gb WD Caviar's
PSU: Ultra X3 1000W
GPU: Evga GTX 260 SC Edition

My question is RAM. =\

I do plan on OCing the new CPU and i will be getting another 260. So what do you all recommend? I've been told to go with Crucial Ballistix..? Many opinions would be awesome!

You could cut the PSU back to a Corsair 750tx and i haven't heard of that chip before O.o.

The ballistix aren't the best anymore since they are not double sided? (something like that i can't remember) but you can get them double sided? Sorry just trying to help, can't remember what it is atm.

How much RAM do you want? 4 gig would probably be best.
Back to stay?
