What RAM should I choose?

Hi, I'm wondering what RAM (DDR2) to get for a new computer I'm making. Some specs for as follows:

Mobo: Asus P5Q-e
CPU: Intel e8400

What else do you need? I plan on overclocking to 3.6ghz (400x9) right away, and maybe 4ghz (445x9) later on w/ an OCZ Vendetta 2 HSF.

My budget for RAM is ~150 CAD, so nothing over that. Thanks. :D Also, I'm hoping for 4GB (2x2Gb) of RAM for Vista Premium 64-bit. Thanks in advance.

More about what choose
  1. I've actually found some memory:

    Corsair XMS2 Dominator TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF 4GB 2X2GB PC2-8500 DDR2-1066 CL5-5-5-15 240PIN Memory Kit ....for $164.99 CAD

    Is this good?
  2. Don't buy any RAM with a spec voltage higher than 1.9V -- it'll just be a factory OC.
  3. I would suggest going with DDR2 800 - the 1066 is usually just oveclocked 800. You should be able to save a little $$$ that way.
  4. try the G-skill 2X2GB 1066 kit you can get it at newegg now for under 100 dollasr.. I have used this memory in 3 builds the past 2 months and it is good memory...
