Well I don't know about if the brand matters, but make sure that they have the same speeds and timings.

Geil, Mushkin, Corsair, Kingston and OCZ are all good ones. I think that Mushkin is the best when it comes to overclocking, but I'm not sure about that.

And yes, brand does matter. Some RAM is TCCD based (aka my Geil PC4000), some is Samsung transistor base (aka Corsair), some is Micron based (aka Crucial), and some is Kyocera/Panasonic/Toshiba based.

it DOES matter. not all ram companies make their ram the same, and that can cause problems. Be safe, get the same kind of ram you already have. Unless you want to ditch the ram you already have and throw in some new ram. Don't mix ram brands, theres a good chance you might run into problems, better off just playing it safe.
