looks nice, but I have never heard of gigaram so I'd play it safe and get the ram from a quality manufacturer.
Here are some good ones, just a little more expensive.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820144114 (my fav )
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146950 (this is ddr433 but even if the mobo doesn't support faster than ddr400 it should work fine [with the ddr400 speeds ofcourse])
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146883 (just look at the latencies)

ValueRam is cheaper, but it won't let u oc anywhere near to where these ones can go.
