This is about RAM not the CPU, and if it was he/she can get a better CPU for cheaper if he/she goes AMD.
The Phenom II X4 955
beats out practically any i5
for the price range it offers.
even the the Phenom II X4 965 is a good buy for about the same price
For the question at hand i say DDR3 is a good bet now that you can get it for cheap, for brands if you need cheap Kingston is a good brand to look at.
But this depends are you getting a new PC?
Building your own?
If you have pre existing hardware I would not just jump in just because we suggested it.
