If you're on a budget.

I recommend PDP Systems memory, I had the DDR500 256MBx2 Dual Channel Kit and I couldnt be happier with it.

I got it to run 245FSB @ 2.6V and memtested with no errors, I'm sure I could have gotten the rated spd (250) but the mobo wouldnt allow for that. Most importantly I only paid 87 bucks from new egg.

If money isnt an issue, then OCZ, Corsair XMS, Crucial Ballistix, you know...
The big money memory makers

I would go with some good Corsair 3200XLPro for high overclocking. 2 Matched sticks.
Im sure this is what u want to do, considering the mobo/cpu combo.
I got bored this weekend and tried for 2800 mhz on air with my 2600M. Was easy, actually hit 2.83GHz and a FSB of 263. Was so excited didnt take screenies, but will onna these days now that i know i can reach it.

You don’t need dual channel for you new system. It wont help you overclock but it will give you more memory bandwidth (improves performance 5-10%) Any two matched sticks (identical) of ram on a mobo set up to run in dual channel mode will run in dual channel mode.
