I always try to save money, but don't ever buy "Value" ram. This is not the place to save money. Value RAM is not always reliable.

I would also recommend getting 2GHz. That is the max for you mobo and it will give you better odds of reaching your goal.

Crucial memory is very good. Go to their site and use their "Crucial Memory Advisor" Tool.

1gig is enough i think to play that game maybe not on the high settings but atleast play it.He onlys looking towards a 6600gt anyways.PLus crucial is way overpriced and that value ram is good quaility.Its not like hes overclocking and plus I wouldnt spend an extra $40 for that crucial crud,for that price you could get some nice ram.
