i.e. $45, $35 AR Patriot memory
those look pretty tall, might not fit well in a slim htpc case

similar ram with standard heat spreaders

They shouldn't be taller than the stock heatsink
I use an Antec Minuet low-profile mATX HTPC case with an Athlon II x4 630 on a Phenom II heatpipes stock heatsink and some very tall Corsair Dominator DDR2 memory. All is well. The similar standard-heatspreader RAM will work too though; I found that one later.
