If you don't plan on overclocking, value RAM should do you just fine. Must people will say its best to match up the RAM sticks. If you could provide the current stick of RAM you have now, it would be best. But here is some good value RAM(corsiar) i have 2 sticks in dual channel right now.

one 512mb stick

two 512mb sticks dual channel
