In the 2 months I've been reading around...the best DDR-800 RAM I've seen for their price are the Mushkin 2x2GB 5-4-4-12@ a ridiculous 1.8v Dual Channel kit (blue copper heatspreaders)
The warranty allows you to bump the voltage to a max of 2.1v, which will let u run at ddr-1066mhz speed at 5-5-5-12...which is tighter than most other RAM in the same price range.
But it's not a huge diff, just go for a reputable brand with tight timings can't go wrong.
