I've heard a lot of good things about Corsair and Crucial, and really mixed things about OCZ. I've seen them in the mags, but a couple people I talked to IRL didn't like them at all.
One of the main chips I'm looking at [Link-Newegg.com]
is Socket 939. I can't seem to search Newegg.com by "Socket A" properly, but isn't that old? I thought 939 was the latest AMD and that LGA775 thing the latest for Intel?
No, I don't need that much RAM, I was just figuring I'd start with 1-2 and put more if the system got taxed. I want to get into video editing type stuff, and I know when a computer has to render something, it taxes the RAM, especially when you're working with higher bitrates.
