Are you going to be OCing? Because with your setup there, you could OC very nicely. Do you mean 2x1gb? because thats what you have listed in your sig.

If not OCing:

If OCing:

My first choice would be Kingston, PNY, or any other brand as long is it's not House RAM, i.e. the store's generic brand. Whenever you hear any RAM horror stories, the culprit is usually House RAM.
