I am confused. Are you looking to get 4GB total with 2 2x1GB kits? First I would recommend not doing that and go with a 2x2gbkit for 4GB. 2x2GB will run better on your board and put less stress on the northbridge.

If you are only shopping on that sight I would recommend one of these kits. It will even save you a little money.

OCZ
or
OCZ Reaper
or if you can find a dealer for Crucial I would recommend these

I'd say crucial, cause corsair isn't doing so good...
don't get 4gb yet... get 2x1gb to start, and when latency gets a bit better on 4gb sets get a 2x2gb set.

Crucial ballistix 2x1gb for $30 after MIR at newegg btw (lol it went up by $2)

Crucial tends to die :\\ a lot..... 2.2V its quite a lot to be running "stock". They just burn themselves out way to easily. I would go with Corsair.

I second that.

My Tracer Ballistix just die after 2 weeks of use, running at stock voltage and timing in DDR-800(2.2V, 4-4-4-12). The 2 sticks were getting a lot of errors in memtest and failed windows memory diagnostic.

I'm reading this on a lot of boards, the new Ballistix seems to die easily.

I just switched to Corsair XMS2 Twinx C4 800Mhz 4-4-4-12 at 2.1V.

It run just fine and I have no more memory problem. Go with Corsair.

Both are good but I prefer Crucial in this case.
