It's great ram...I just recommend keeping it under 2.1V as voltages over that tend to make the sticks die in like 6-8 months.

Screw G-Skill HZ's on Newegg they are $140
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

for that you can get a really good 4gb Kit
