Your best bet is to look on the certified memory vendor's list for your board. That said more times than not, good quality ram that isn't on the list will still work. I like G.Skill right now, but Corsair, Mushkin, Kingston are all good quality companies. Just do some research and make sure if they aren't on the list, that they will still work. Usually a quick Google with the proposed ram/motherboard combo will tell you pretty quickly if they work together. 2x2gb sticks is fine for most if not all games, and 80 to 90 percent of the apps out there. Just make sure the kit you buy is in two's, so you can run dual channel, and not over 1.65 on the voltage.
