Default ddr3 2gb kit for $59?????

I'm trying to build a halfway decent machine but also not looking to break the bank. I won't be doing any oc'ing for now. Can anyone tell me if this memory is half decent? it's HALF price at a local retailer!!!

Here's my current setup/

Asus Striker II extreme
2x GTX260's in SLi
2x raptor 150gb
Corsair 1000W modular psu
Antec 1200 case

It is ok, but given the high-quality of your components, why not splurge a wee bit more and go for a slightly higher-clocked 4GB kit such as this one.

4GB is no longer a luxury, it is a must

I agree with Mac, nowadays 4GB is really where it is at with memory.
Although the Corsair memory is a good choice for you.

I do plan to buy 2 of these kits. I'm a bit strapped for cash so I will use this for the first few months just to get the system up and running then sell it and upgrade to a high end 8gb kit. I just cant believe how cheap this stuff is.

Nah, I don't think it's worth it IMO. It's 2x1GB DDR3-1066. You can get the same performance for cheaper if you bought a single 2x2GB DDR2-1066 kit than if you bought two of those, 4x1GB DDR3-1066...Kinda pointless... :(
