It depends on what your computer is for? If your computer is used for playing games then you might want to think about getting Kingston HyperX RAM which is specialised for gaming. I've heard Corsair is good particularly for cases with a see-through side panel as it lights up depending on how much of it is being used.

Corsair is one of the best.

I prefer Crucial - they're very affordable and their quality is top notch. If you go to their website and put in your computer make/model, it will show you all the RAM types that are compatible w/ your PC. www.crucial.com

Corsair's are expensive because they are amongst the highest of quality and have about the lowset latency
