G.Skill Ripjaws is pretty good. Going 4x2GB you would probably be able to get lower latency at the same clock speed as 2x4GB.

Newegg 2x4GB $100:

For VM's, 8 GB is enough (unless you run like 8+ at the same time).
Also, for anything other than heavy image/video editing, 8 GB is more than enough. Hell, even playing 2 games at a time (one active one minimized)+20 Chrome tabs+Winamp, i barely use over 4 GB.
