Kingston sucks. Corsair is pretty good with their XMS and Value Select (lotsa bang for your buck) series. Crucial has only one good line of RAM, the Ballistix. OCZ has some pretty good RAM also.

Talking dont forget about mushkin

I recomend getting about 2 or three sticks of mushkin black 2-2-2 edition, it just flat out rules, a little on the pricey side though, but if you can get a fatality board, price probably isnt an issue
when these get back in stock get some best ram ive ever used
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...146-284&depa=1
BTW crucial ballisitix is good, but the timings on this mushkin ram are better, if your pressed for money go ballistix, if your not, go mushkin.

Well you always have to make sure that your mobo can that the RAM. Check your mobo manufactures website for comptability. In some cases some RAM will work in dual channel with certain types and not with others. Check this website for your mobo.

i know of three good ram's: corsair, ocz, and geil. those guys are totally good ram makers. and yeah, dual cahnnel is the way to go. picture the difference liek this: single channel is like a four lane highway and then dual channel is like an 8 lane highway. big differene huh? yeha.
