What are you going to be using this for and what is your budget...

if you search in the forum sections, you can also find people who have builds that we have helped... Some of those might be better to look at instead of getting 40 posts of the same thing... "Get this, it's better", or "Don't use that, it sucks" etc, etc, etc...

You've got 8GB of RAM there, unless you are running 64bit XP or Vista, your OS won't recognize all of it. Plus, you probably really only need 2GB, maybe a MAX of 4GB for anything you are planning on doing.
Heck, I run Autodesk Inventor 2009 Professional with 4GB and I've never seen the thing skip a beat.

Personally, I have always used Patriot memory. I would recommend that brand.
Newegg.com - Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Now I'm sure others will have input as well.

It is, but unless you are running a 64bit operating system, the RAM won't even been 'seen', so therefore it would be a waste to buy and install. 2GB is all you'll need, I have 4GB because I run Windows XP x64 and because I do 3D CAD at home. If it weren't for that, I'd only have 2GB.

2GB of ram seems like it will be fine for your needs WooBree. It would be handy to know your budget too please.
