I would recommend Kingston, but again with the constant of misconception, the memory isnt dual channel, only your motherboard supports that feature, not the memory.

2x512 DDR Dual Channel for less than 250... that's a tough one unless your planning on getting PC2700 which would kinda be a waste.

If you're in Western Canada ncix.com has some options for 2x512 dual channel ddr PC3200 for just under 250.

My recommendation though is not to skimp on the ram save 50-100 more dollars and buy your self some good solid ram.

Those are the only two that match your specs that are still in stock for Newegg, and are Kingston. Corsair is a very good company as well. Hope those links help.

Get 2x sticks of Ultra PC3200 ram from tigerdirect.com

If your not lasy, the store is in Toronto anyways.

You can get a pair of ram for like 120$ it's crazy.

Any of the same ram works in dual channel BTW.
