First of all, don't buy from TigerDirect. Buy from Newegg.com. $40 cheaper...and TigerDirect sucks for reliability.

Same brand is RECOMMENDED, but not REQUIRED. The Corsair Valueselect will be on Newegg for quite a while, a couple of years, so you have time to upgrade.

you could probably find a 2pack of 1GB ram stix which would usually save you a lil $.

****ing idiot. I already told you;

The Need To Invest In 2 GB Of RAM Is Not Marketing Hype.

Thats the freaking title. And look at this;

As the graph shows; with insufficient system memory, your computer will have to access the hard drive a lot, and that will severely hurt the game play. The absolutely worst part is all these deep dips - they will really hurt your aim and reaction time.
