For gaming, you really don't need anything more than 3 to 4 gigs.

Some of the common quality brands tend to be G.Skill, Mushkin Enhanced, and Corsair (not worth it when overpriced). And memory prices have been going down as of late, so you have quite a few great choices.

Not sure how much you'll be looking to overclock but here are just a few good 4GB sets:

Mushkin Blackline

G.Skill Ripjaws

G.Skill PI

For about $50 more, you can get quality 6GB RAM, but for gaming and most other use, it really won't be worth it.

No you need to look at the speed also. The second two run at 1866mhz and 2000mhz.
