I'm not experienced but these 2 products seem to be really popular if it's any help.

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB)


G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB)

I wouldn't bother running SLI on 8500GT's.
Go for a higher end card, which will be better than 2 of those put together. Plus, some games don't even like SLI so you won't get a boost.

Buy a 8800GTS 320MB at least, if you are thinking of gaming.

Not really...160 gigs is plenty for most people. I'd say a general user probably only uses 40 gigs.
