What's the model number, can't really specify details without the model of your motherboard. However, I'm guessing you can go with DDR2-1066 memory.

What memory do you have in there now? If you need brand-new memory, you can probably get a 2x4GB kit (i.e 2 sticks of 4GB memory). But again, can't specify without your mobo model.

If you're running 4gig of DDR2 800 memory there's really no sense to spend money to "upgrade" your ram.

I was running Crucial Ballistix in my old eVGA 680i motherboard.

I agree with swifty. If you already have 4 GB of RAM, save your money. If you presently have 2 GB, best bet is to add 2 more GB of the same brand. If you are going for 2 X 2 GB, I do not see the need for anything more than DDR2-800 RAM. Upper FSB limit of a 680i motherboard is around 440 - 450 MHz.

Mine booted and ran with stability at 442 MHz, but not at 443 MHz at what I regarded as a reasonable MCP voltage.
