Default ram for AM2

Hey all,

I'm helping a buddy of mine build his first homemade pc, and we decided to go AM2 4200+ because of the crazy price drops.

I did notice that some sets of RAM were specified as Intel-compatibility DDR2, so I was wondering if anyone who's built an AM2 gaming rig could just point me in the right direction for a good 2 gig kit of RAM so I don't look like an idiot when the mobo won't post.. lol.

Oh, the mobo we're using is the ASUS M2N4-SLI btw, if anyone's got experience w/ that, comments would be appreciated as well.

Thanks.

that is nice ram, but VERY expensive...

the pqi is just about your cheapest option...and it works fine with am2 motherboards. so if you want cheap, reliable and good speed. go with the pqi.

but im sure that corsair ram is VERY nice.

ya the PQI is also nice ram but not as good overclocker as that, I bought it for its ability to reach 1200-1300MHz on CAS 5 timings which is pretty good.
