Corsair and Kingston are good brands.

People love their G Skill ram on here. Anything samsung TCCD or BH-5 is really liked over here, and the G Skill TCCD's are rated for pc4400.

what are you going to be doing? overclocking?

if you specifically want pc3200 for some reason, get OCZ el platinum series.

otherwise, i'd recommend something like ocz pc4000 gold rev 2.

important things:

brand name

speed rating (pc4000 can work in many mbs that don't "support" it. if you overclock, this is what you want, because you can set it to run faster than normal to get your system faster, and it won't fry the ram - it's meant to run fast).

cat latency. lower = better.

If your running dual 2.4 xeon's which is server, which means your most likely not overclocking, just get the cheapest CL2.5 ram that works.

If your board takes non ECC PC3200, get the corsair value select packs.

The timing of 2.5 \ 3.0 \ 2.0 is the only thing that matters for ram peformance besides the 1t \ 2t setting really besides the clockspeed.
