I don't think you can get much more than value RAM with 100 bucks. That is fine if you don't plan on doing some high-end overclocking, and by the way it looks, with that motherboard you picked out, looks like you are; because that is what the motherboard is specifically made for. If you not overclocking I would go with the GA-965P-DS3, but if it's SLI your looking at, there are cheaper alternatives.

If your planning on upgrading to 2GB in the future I would recommend getting a single 1GB stick until you can buy another and dual channel them in 2GB (like what I'm doing).

Your not going to find good OC'able ram for under 100. The best your going to get is this one right here.

This G.Skill from reviews says it OC's EXCELLENT for the price. Plus $115 isnt bad for something like that.

E6300 w/ Arctic Freezer Pro 7 @ 3.6ghz 1.4Vcore
Antec 900 Case
EVGA 750i FTW Mobo
4x1GB of G.skill DDR2-800
2 8800GT in SLI
22" Samsung Syncmaster
1 250GB WD and 1 Seagate 7200.10 in RAID 0
Corsair 520HX 3DMark06 Score: 13900
