I'm running Corsair's Dominator 2 x 2GB. Works beautifully and gives plenty of overhead for overclocking in the future. The integral fan it comes with is a load of crap though so save your money and spend it on a proper case instead.

I agree with Eldonko, that Gskill looks to be a great choice. For a better budget, check these. I use em, and at the price there is not a lot to complain about. Buy G.SKILL F2-8000CL5D-4GBPQ PC2-8000 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-1000 CL5-5-5-15 240PIN Dual Channel Memory Kit
