I'd go with the Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC2-6400 2GB 2X1GB DDR2-800 CL4-4-4-12 240PIN Dual Channel Kit W/ LEDs.

Either that, or their non-LED brother.

Are you limited to those choices alone? May I also ask what CPU you are pairing these up with as that all matters to make a good choice.

32-bit Vista will not read it all.

You can add it all in, but it will only recognize around 3-3.5 GB of it.

There is nothing you can do to overcome this limitation, aside from purchase a new 64-bit operating system.
